Full text of "The Kieve Annual"

See other formats


This thirty-seventh Kieve Annual is affectionately dedicated 
to the increasingly large number of second generation boys 
and councillors. 

Since 1926 a great deal has happened to change the shape 
and attitudes of the world in which we live, but Kieve has 
managed to preserve its original ideals tenaciously. 

Thanks to the efforts and enthusiasm of untold hundreds 
of people, Kieve has successfully weathered infancy and ado- 
lescence, and we predict a rich maturity. 

We trust that the Kieve boy of the future will follow in the 
path of those who have gone from Kieve before him.

"Grant we beseech thee, Almighty God, that the words we have heard with our 
outward ears, may through Thy grace, be so grafted inwardly in our hearts, that they 
may bring forth in us the fruit of good living; endue us with strength, generosity, 
inquisitiveness, tolerance, and love; to the honor and praise of Thy Holy Name, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN." 

The Sunday morning chapel service includes the Order for Daily morning 
prayer from the Book of Common Prayer and a sermon. The sermons this 
summer have tried to emphasize the importance of Christian living and of tak- 
ing into our daily lives that which we hear and say on Sunday. Christianity 
is NOT a Sunday religion; it is not something which we all do on Sunday be- 
cause it is nice. Christianity is essential to our everyday living. 

The first five sermons were on what was called the traits of a leader; and we 
defined this person as one who is doing his part to the best of his abihty whether 
it be as captain, president or a follower. We saw that these traits were: (1) 
generosity or giving of oneself to others and God; (2) inquisitiveness or an 
active interest in those around us and in the things going on around us; (3) 
strength — physical, courage, faith and knowledge; (4) tolerance — "Judge not 
lest yt be judged." — and we saw that if we look for good we shall find it; while, 
if we look for the bad we shall rather find that; and (5) Sincerity and Love. 
The summary of the law might well summarize all of these — "thou shalt love 
the Lord Thy God with all thy heart, with all thy strength, with all thy mind 
and with all thy soul; and thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." We then 
took a quick look at prayer where we saw the kinds of prayer, how to pray, 
and how prayer is essential to Christian living. The next to last Sunday Mr. 
Hudson, a guest speaker, spoke to us of the importance of developing the 
potential which God has given us and how adversity helps us to grow. Finally, 
water sports weekend we discussed the essence of the Christian family. In all 
of these we continually saw the importance of putting into daily practice the 
things which God commanded us to do in our daily lives. — John H. Smith. 



The Basic Theme or method of treatment that we have tried to establish 
this year has been one of ''preventive medicine" so to speak. We impressed 
upon the campers the importance of reporting to the infirmary with the sUghtest 
physical complaint in order that an evaluation could be made immediately — 
thereby aborting any complications that could have happened had they not been 
checked in the very beginning. 

We have also used some of the new sprays now on the market and find them 
effective. These have eliminated infections from insect bites, sunburn, cuts, 
etc. These new methods of emergency treatment are all in keeping with main- 
taining the excellent record of the Camp Kieve Infirmary down thru the years, 
i.e., — fully equipped and with the best ^nd newest methods. 

Aside from Httle sicknesses that occur from day to day the infirmary is also 
a place where the camper feels free to come and say, "We're planning a dance 
for Friday night, would you mind pressing my shirt for me?" Other favors 
asked of the nurse are: mending bathing suits, ripped pants, sewing on arrows 
and different award insignias. We have been asked for: shoestrings, safety 
pins, long underwear, washing powder, string, scissors to cut toenails, and last 
but not least to "nurse" the Uttle fawn Kieve IX. 

The infirmary also set a precedent at Kieve this year by welcoming the first 
nurse's husband to the family. Since the infirmary is on a 24 hour daily cover- 
age the long hours were made more tolerable. 

We have had no epidemics, no contagion and no illnesses of any consequence 
this year. — Kay Stokes. 



Tutoring is a necessary evil that will be with us, with increasing intensity 
probably, for a long time to come. Blame it on the competition for world 
supremacy with the Communists if you want to; but by all means praise the 
boys who have found time this summer in an already jam-packed schedule to 
"hit the books." 

It is the belief at Kieve that nothing, including tutoring, should stand in 
the way of the unique value of the regular camping program. Therefore those 
boys who had lessons to prepare and tutorial sessions to meet had to do so in 
"free time." This meant that they had to have a little more self-discipline 
than the other boys, and that they had to manage their time particularly wisely. 

Our hats are off to the following boys who rolled up a fine record of achieve- 
ment in the following subjects with their tutors.

Kieve offers an intensive and varied program of activities 
which are enthusiastically received by the campers. Some 
new sports such as touch football, soccer, and volleyball sup- 
plemented an already full program that all enjoyed. Instruc- 
tion and competition were always available to all. 

[ 14] 


The archery range provided a great deal of activity and enjoyment for the 
campers this summer. The range was usually crowded during activity period, 
and a few of the more experienced and devoted archers made the trek down 
to the targets in free time to practice for their awards. 

Every boy in camp shot for his awards, and a large majority of the campers 
gained at least one of the felt arrows worn so proudly on their shirts. Prac- 
tically everyone received his white arrow, and quite a few young men won three 
or more qualifications. The outstanding archer in the Bunker Hills was Tom 
Reynolds, but Special Mention should also go to John Clark, Mac Keyser, 
and Nicky LeFevre. In the Glenayrs, Willy Stettinius gained five qualifications 
in his first year, and Rob Femald made a bold bid to capture Kieve Archer 
honors. The Harris boys produced some surprises. Rick Koester, Hughes 
Pack, and Andy Sutton became fine Robin Hoods. Below one will find listed 
the highest qualification won by each boy in 1962.

As IN recent years, interest in baseball was slow during the first half of the 
year, but picked up considerably with the prospect of outside games as a lure. 

To practice for the Chimney Point tilts, there was a series of Orange-Black 
games. However, the Oranges followed suit of their Councillor softball counter- 
parts by immediately dominating the play. FirebaUing pitcher John van Roden, 
converted (almost) trackman Tom Supplee, Robby Richardson, Jeff Slack, 
Ewing Walker, Dave Lott, Stephen Michael, Tom McKoy, and Pete Gamage 
starred for the winners; pitcher Paul Newhn, Robby Femald, Jon Piper, 
Hughes Pack, Ned Hetherington, John Perkins, and Freddy Levering were 
their worthy opponents. Bunker Hillers Billy Baer, Ned McKoy, and Billy White 
(who improved immensely in one year) added more spark to the fire. 

The Chimney Point game was extremely frustrating. CP got off to a quick 
5-0 lead before Paul Newlin's middle inning relief pitching stemmed the tide. 
Kieve batters were hitting the ball solidly, but right back at somebody. Chief 
victims of CP's stellar defense were Levering, Richardson, and Fernald. How- 
ever, Hetherington, Slack, and T. McKoy drilled hits through the defense to 
cut the score to 5-3. However, Kieve lapses allowed the opposition to pull away 
to a 10-3 victory. 

The 13-year-old game saw Kieve build up a 4-2 lead after 4Vi innings on 
the hitting of Slack, Hetherington, and, especially, Levering and the one-hit 
pitching of van Roden, who was overpowering. At this point, the Kieve gen- 
tlemen handed over a 6-4 victory to Chimney Point. 

Baseball played an enjoyable part in a fine summer. — Dick Koelle. 


Boxing and Wrestling 

The boxing and wrestling matches were started on the first Friday of camp. 
The campers responded with gusto, with full cards each evening. Matches were 
alternated so that the power and strength of those who duplicated activities 
did not waste away. Two matches of the season were of special interest. The 
first was a match between the Underweight Champion of Kieve and the Over- 
weight Champion of the World of Councillors. Geoft' Nuckols through sheer 
determination, pinned his opponent in the third period. Some say the big 
fellow was a bit winded, but he said that it was the lack of food intake that 
evening that brought his downfall. A real downfall it was. The other match 
of importance was a tag team aft'air between the team of Dunn and Willy J. 
versus the team of Freddy Moller, Swamp Fox, and Nuckols. The campers 
again proved their ability by pinning the council in the third round. 

The helpful instruction of Dune Cocroft paid dividends for Ned McCoy, 
Ricky Crecraft, Freddy Moller, Tom Supplee, Stu Harper, Steven Michael, 
Kim Moller, Will Stettinius and Billy Baer. 

Though the matches were all fought fiercely, a safety record of splendid 
proportion was recorded. Good sportsmanship and the sheer pleasure of hav- 
ing a good time prevailed. — Grant Dunn.

Music and Drama 

Music is an important factor in the growing up of any boy. and Kieve gives 
a wonderful opportunity for this. Every Sunday the choir's loud voices give 
support to the congregation on the hymns. Each boy is encouraged to join 
the choir if he has a decent voice, or a frog voice, and the desire to sing. 

The traditional Saturday night skits were lost this year, but trip skits pro- 
vided lots of fun. Aside from these, the councillors put on one show which 
was a take-off on a rock 'n* roll show — this proved to be quite amusing. 

A week and a half before the close of camp, the rehearsals for the water- 
sports play were begun. This year we put on a musical comedy called Parents 
Think the Darndest Things. The lead parts in this show were carried by Ned 
Hetherington. John van Roden. and Jeff' Slack; who played a mother, father, 
and son respectively. A sell-out first night audience attested to the polish of 
the performance by the cast of 30. 

I owe a great debt to Nancy Kennedy, for without her this branch of camp 
life would not survive. She not only played the organ for the chapel services, 
but she wrote the music and the entire play for the watersports production. 

I must also thank the entire cast for their co-operation, for it made the direc- 
tion of the play an easy task. — Ted Whitney. 



In its second year as an activity at Kieve, radio has become a popular and 
worth-while activity. Thirty percent of the camp built kits, and others wished 
they could, but it was too late to order more. The kits this year were of a 
more difficult nature than last year. This is due to the fact that more selection is 
ottered with these advanced kits. 

The most popular kits were the broadcasters, which enabled a boy to talk 
into another nearby radio. These interested the boys because they were able 
to disturb a councillor, a brother, or sister while they were listening to the radio. 

Another popular kit was the intercom. This kit enabled a boy to talk to a 
cabin mate, after the lights were out, behind the councillor's back. They also 
make very useful items in a house, it saves much of the yelling which usually 
goes on up and down the stairs. 

Radio not only ofi'ers a boy a valuable experience in the field of electronics, 
but it gives a boy a useful kit which he will value for the rest of his life. 

I hope that in the years to come the increasing enthusiasm of the radio pro- 
gram continues. — Ted Whitney. 


Work in the shop this year, as in others, underwent a series of fads which 
disappeared as fast as they occurred. A wild splurge in the beginning ex- 
hausted the supply of models. After this gymp became the thing. Lanyards 
and just plain stitch pieces became noticeable all over camp. Soon some 
turned to making homemade, wooden pipes. Pine needle tobacco proved popu- 
lar until after the first attempt. Wood carvings, boats, wood collections, and 
various woodwork occupied the boys for the remainder of the season. The 
shop was productive the entire summer, and some new craftsmen were revealed. 
— Jim Quinn. 



The landsports of football, soc- 
cer, and track got a big boost this 
year when the old archery range was 
bulldozed and converted into an 
athletic field. 

With the support and enthusiasm 
of many councillors, razzle-dazzle 
football became very popular. The 
high-scoring games (the score of 
one game was 114-36) saw plenty 
of action. The participation of the 
North Harris boys (long pass won- 
der Tom Supplee. John van Roden. 
Noel Tales. Frank Van Dusen. Dave 
Lott. and the rest), sparked the 
whole camp. Paul Newlin. Pete 
Gamage. Ricky Crecraft. Ewing 
Walker. Fred Levering. Robby 
Richardson. Jeff Slack, and Robby 
Femald in the Glenayrs. and Jack 
Machen. Mike Miller. Steve Nick- 
less. BiUy Baer. and Swamp Fox 
Keyser in the Bunker Hills also had 
their moments of glor\^ When in 
camp. Henry Fenhagen and Ricky 
Koester made their presence felt. 

A frequent change-of-pace was 
soccer. The chief addicts were Kim 
Moller. Hugh Nevin. Ricky Cre- 
craft. Ned Hetherington. Tom and 
Ned McKoy, and Jay Brown. 

A track meet in mid-summer saw 
the Blacks defeat the Oranges. 
42-29. despite a double by Tom 
Supplee in the dash and hurdles. 
Crecraft. Brown. Tales, and Ches 
Yellott were also outstanding. 

Volleyball w as quite popular dur- 
ing the summer, but even Morrie 
Heckscher and Dave Scull could not 
withstand the appeal of football. 
Many games were held, and many 
became quite proficient. 

All in all. Kieve had a very ac- 
tive year on the new field. — ^Dick 



Track was introduced this year for the first time. With our new field, and 
new equipment several worthwhile track meets were held. Ricl^y Crecraft 
and Tom Supplee dominated most events, but Robbie Richardson, John Per- 
kins, Rich and Ches Yellott, and Noel Fales were close behind. The jumping 
pit drew the most interest, as many tasted sawdust for the first time as they 
learned to be John Thomases, Valeri Brumels, and Ralph Bostons. This self 
sacrificing sport of track offers each boy a challenge, whether it be jumping 
high or long, throwing weights, running long or short distances, or participating 
in a relay. Physical fitness respects track as its greatest sport, and those who 
participate gain physical, moral, and spiritual fibre. — Jack Kistler. 


The Damariscotta Lake was low this year on the campers' arrival, which 
resulted in very little bass fishing. A few were landed by plugging, and even 
more by trolling. The pickerel fishing was excellent as many fought the weeds 
and pulled many a lunker from the lake. The real fishing took place on the 
many trips. Pickerel fishing which is unsurpassable was experienced on the 
Machias trips. One party caught 88 fish in a day and a half. Northern pike 
were taken on the Penobscot, as were white perch and pickerel on the Dead 
River. The ocean fishermen caught pollock and a few short mackerel. All in 
all the fishing was good to excellent, and Best Fisherman goes to Denny Emory, 
who only this year began fishing. — Jack Kistler. 



Once again, riflery proved to be one of the most popular activities in camp. 
The first few days were spent in stressing the importance of safety, and in 
teaching the correct positions. Once this was mastered the use of the sights 
came easily for everyone. With these basic steps out of the way, but by no 
means forgotten, the well known cry of "lock and load" was heard again. 

Almost every boy in camp earned a "K." This year we had a large number 
of new boys who not only gained their pro-marksman, but higher qualifications 
as well. Among these riflemen were Dune Ely, Harry Cabot, Watt Reynolds, 
Bucky King, Hughes Pack and Ned McKoy. Some of the other boys who 
proved to be skillful were Tom Supplee, Ned Hetherington, Paul Newlin, Rob 
Fernald, Jack Machen, Larry Doe, and Terry Rhoads. All this adds up to 
another bang up year at the rifle range. 

Below, one can find the list of highest qualifications that a boy received this 
year. — John Heyl.

Under the careful eye of supervisor. Morrison H. Heckscher. the council, labor- 
ins furiously through a week of blood, sweat, and tears, transformed a quaner 
acre of weeds into \\'imbleton"s Maine branch, just in time for the arrival and 
secret training of next year's Davis Cup team. 

The main support for this year's tennis camp came from South Glenayr and 
the Bunker Hills, the former providing Rob Richardson. Reed Shingle. Jeff Slack. 
Rob Femald. and Doug Reddy. while the latter furnished a large group of 
eager novices including Dune Ely. Graham Yearley. Phil Franke. Steve Nick- 
less. Mike Miller. Mac Keyser. Fred MoUer. and Tom Iglehan. 

From Nonh Harris came regulars Dave Lott. Frank \'an Dusen. .Ajidy Sut- 
ton. Hughes Pack. Beaney LeFevre. and John van Roden. while Jay Brown 
and Geoff Nuckols held the hne for Nonh Glenayr. 

When in camp. South Harris provided the interest of Joe D" Antonio. Rick 
Koester. and Rich Yellott. and the steady skill of Hugh Xevin and Henr\ Fen- 

Before his much lamented departure in early August, tennis pro Morrie 
Heckscher contributed many hours of love's labor to the creation of a third 
court. The results, a highly serviceable court, speaks for itself. 

The ke\-note of the Heckscher "Period" was instruction, which kept all the 
available manpower and coun space filled beyond capacity most activity periods, 
while free time usually found the courts serving interested netmen. especially in 
the evenings, when John Smith would take on South Glenayr Challengers. 

For about a week. Kieve tennis hung in limbo, until the arrival of maestro 
Bob Bishop and the institution of the annual tournament, which embroiled all 
the campers in vigorous defense of their egos, and incidentally in some excel- 
lent tennis play. — Dave Scull. 

The results follow: 

Bunker Hill Tournament: Winner. Jack Machen: Runner-up. N'ed McKov. 
Glenayr Tournament: Winner. Ricky Crecraft: Runner-up. Rob Richardson. 
Harris Tournament: Winner. Fred Levering: Runner-up. Rickv Crecraft. 



This year our sailing fleet at Kieve was increased from six boats to nine. The 
three new additions are Sunrays, a sixteen foot sloop with a 23' 6" mast. With 
these new boats we are now able to handle twelve more boys each period. 

Our sailing program is geared to teach the boys the fundamentals of sailing. 
In learning these principles a boy can become a crewman or a skipper. The 
highest of these ranks is skipper. If a boy attains this rank he knows the lan- 
guage of sailing and can sail a simple rigged boat by himself. Those campers 
who are not quite ready to skipper hold the rank of crewman. To aid these 
sailors both Downy and I tried to have the boys race almost every period. It has 
been proven in past years that if a boy can skipper a boat while racing he is 
probably going to learn the principles of sailing much faster. 

Before ending, special mention should go to Denny Emory, Ches Yellott, 
Mac Keyser. Aub Huston, Mike Miller, Phil Franke, Chris Ross, Peter Wal- 
lace and Kim Moller for attaining the rank of skipper. — Jim Gregory. 


A NUMBER of varied activities were pursued in nature this summer. A couple 
of "up-side-do\vTi"" hikes were taken and uncovered such specimens as sala- 
manders, frogs, various crickets and water bugs and several species of ants. 

The Nature room might better have been called the Kieve Zoo or the Kieve 
Biology Laboratory, for there were several cages with such things as chipmunks, 
garter and green snakes, frogs, a snapping turtle, salamanders and birds. We 
also had. for a very short time, a large raccoon chained inside the "deer pen" 
but he managed to break loose shortly after being captured. 

Also in nature were performed dissections on frogs, a garter snake, a chip- 
munk and a woodchuck. In these dissections we noted the various organs and 
systems and commented on God's wondrous creation as seen in the intricate 
make-up of these animals. 

There were also several projects such as John Perkins' woodcuts of various 
trees, and Larry Doe and Peter Wallace's plaster molds of the various tree 
leaves found around camp. 

Working with this small part of God's wonderful creation was fun and bene- 
ficial for all those who participated. — John Smith. 


Waterfront and Life Saving 

The pulse of activity at the Kieve waterfront was greatly slowed this summer 
by the temperamental and fickle weather we experienced. Even with this handi- 
cap many of the campers attacked the water of Lake Damariscotta in quest 
of Red Cross swimming instruction. 

In these classes speed and competitive swimming are not emphasized. Rather, 
attention is directed at the swimmer's form, the co-ordination of his arms and 
legs into a smooth, rhythmic stroke. Thus the favorite swimming hole stroke 
or the country club special may seem an adequate type of stroke, although 
instructors would consider these an eyesore. Beginner, Intermediate and Swim- 
mer are the classes held. 

The pinnacle of the waterfront season occurred late in July when Freddy 
Moller, Nicky LeFevre. and Tom Reynolds swam to their island. This gallant 
accomplishment gave us a one hundred percent record for this 600 yard swim. 

Kieve being a much older camp this year provided the instructor with about 
twenty boys who finished up their junior life saving courses. Classes were held 
morning and afternoon. The boys learned well their lessons. — Hill Ferguson. 

The following attended the class: 
Behlmer Lott Stettinius 

Gamage McKoy, T. Supplee 

Hetherington Michael Van Dusen 

Huston Newlin Walker 

King Nuckols Wallace

1962 SAW MANY new trips added to an already overflowing 
trip schedule. The West Branch of the Penobscot River 
trip, the Dead River excursion, new sites at the White Moun- 
tains, and various Pemaquid River trips complemented the 
older lake, Machias, and Katahdin trips. The oldest camp- 
ers experienced the wilds of Canada, a trip that shall never 
be forgotten. The weather sometimes played tricks with the 
boys, but a real love of the woods, the appreciation of the 
forest creatures, and the pure joy of tramping in almost virgin 
territory allowed each to mature in a way that many will 
never know.

July 2-5, 1962 
Monday, July 2 — Owing to the ulti- 
mate in organization by Messrs. Willie 
-J"' Stokes and Morrie Heckscher, five 
members of South Harris and two of 
North Harris were fed and on the 
road heading for Katahdin in Dick's 
VW bus, all by 7 A. M. The trip 
north was highly uneventful except for 
a new game known as ' "gas-station 
guessing," whereby we stopped our 
speedy chariot at ever\' gas station on 
Rte. zrl, vainly tr>ang to find the one 
with our bread. All was in vain, how- 
ever, and we bought some on our own. 

We arrived at Roaring Brook Camp- 
site by 12:30 P. M.. after many tempt- 
ing views of the mountain on this 
beautiful day. We made a quick lunch 
and headed up the 3.3 mile trail to 
Chimney Pond, our base camp in the 
lower Himalayas. 

The packs, containing enough food 
for an army for two weeks, were heavy, 
to say the least, but — with a little con- 
sultation from Bonaparte Nevin — the 
marching formation started off with 
Master Sergeant Willie "J" setting a 
grueling pace. Even as their excellent 
packs fell to pieces John Rideout and 
Kim Moller made no complaints. In 
fact, all members of this select group 
gave all they had, knowing full well 
that the alternative was starvation. 
The only vast miscalculation was Mor- 
rie"s naive belief that all would be 
pleasantly slow with Willie 'T" in the 
lead. Remember, boys, when ele- 
phants charge they move fast! 

Once at our campsite we invaded 
two good lean-tos. built a roaring fire, 
and had a magnificent repast, a les 
councillors. In the shadow of Baxter 
Peak, the most impressive sight in all 
New England, all hit the hay. 

Tuesday, July 3 — Up by six, we 
breakfasted, packed a Yearley-special 
lunch, and took off for a day of climb- 
ing. In perfect weather we climbed 
the steep Cathedral Trail, John Per- 
kins carr>ing the lunch pack which was 
only shghtly bigger than himself. Wil- 
he "J," with infinite subtlety, made it 
clear, before the peak was reached, 
that it was lunch time (11:30). Dried 
fruits, cheese, and p & j sandwiches 
tasted good. Eventually all made it to 
the top of the mountain for a superb 
view. With the "vicious"' Knife Edge 
Trail to go Hugh Nevin stepped up 
his fear campaign against one unsus- 
pecting councillor. Dennis Emory, to 
avoid being blown away like a leaf, 
was securely lashed to the lead man 
for additional stability. Descending 
Dudley Peak at a leisurely pace. I 
found one councillor already snoozing 
as eight of us reached the campsite. 
A culinary masterpiece in the Italian 
idiom by Chef Boy-ar-dee topped off 
a perfect day. 

Wednesday, July 4 — A special kind 
of independence awaited our motley 
crew this 4th of July, for by 10 A. M. 
the heavens loosed a veritable down- 
pour which was to continue throughout 
the day and night — a face-saving rea- 
son for some tired people not to cUmb 
that day. Stories were read, the camp- 
site cleaned up as much as possible, 
and much sacktime scored. We were 
able to feed some less experienced 
families of campers nearby with a new 
delicacy that evening. (Dogs from all 
over the park rushed to the scene to 
help.) In bitter cold (38') we called 
it a day (what kind, pray tell?), but 
not till setting off a railroad flare given 
us by a most helpful ranger. 
Thursday, July 5 — Up early, we 
bolted a token breakfast, had cocoa at 


the ranger station, and shipped out tor 
Roaring Brook and Kieve. The 
weather was still a bit wet, but we 
slipped and slid at record speed to the 
patiently waiting bus. Underway, 
John Ridcout notified the driver of a 
possible BL action, but nothing came 
of it, 1 am thankful to say. We ac- 
tually passed two bicycles in our ve- 
hicle, which gave us all a feeling of 
accomplishment. Jay Perry provided 
a show for all passing cars on Route 
#1, as usual. Once on the Kieve 
road Cocoa-Pot Perkins had to ignite 
the holiday spirit, but three times he 
disappointed us. The final incident of 
a most delightful trip with good, rough 
and ready campers came as Dick's 
Deutsch Duck stalled in first gear 
twice on the Kieve hill. Alex Yearley 
pushed us all to fresh water, soap, and 
warm beds. — Morrie Heckscher. 

July 3-5 

At 9:30 A. M. the Windy Island trip 
left camp with John Heyl, John Mc- 
Cord and Grant Dunn as the council- 
lors in charge. The campers included 
Merritt Bedell, Duncan Ely, Phil 
Franke, Stuart Harper, Steve Nickless, 
Graham Yearley, Mike Miller. Pete 
Moore. Dixie Thayer, Jack Machen 
and Bill White. Upon arriving the 
first order of business was to set up 
the camp. The boys spent most of 
the morning stringing up their jungle 
hammocks. When this order of busi- 
ness was attended to a general swim 
was called and everyone enjoyed it, 
including the councillors. 

Lunch consisted of plenty of peanut 
butter and jelly sandwiches and pink 
lemonade. The campers showed their 
willingness to help by cleaning up 
after lunch. 

In the afternoon John Heyl and 
John McCord took the campers on a 

trip about the Island while Grant Dunn 
took Mike Miller and Phil Franke fish- 
ing. The rest of the afternoon was 
spent swimming and playing. 

After dinner, which consisted of 
hamburgers, mashed potatoes, peas 
and Hawaiian punch, three games of 
hide-and-seek were played with prizes 
of candy being awarded the winner. 
The games were so arranged so every- 
one got some candy. Taps were 
sounded about 9:30 and everyone had 
a good night's rest. 

The second day started with Jack 
Machen getting up at 4:30 to go fish- 
ing. With the luck he had he should 
have stayed in bed. 

After breakfast a general play pe- 
riod followed with some boys resting, 
some fishing, and some exploring. A 
few canoe trips were tried but the wind 
and waves were too strong to make 
much headway so all were turned back. 

Right after dinner the boys retired 
to get some sleep before raiding Sandy 
Cove. Dressed in Marine type outfits 
the campers slipped silently across the 
lake and completely surprised Sandy 
Cove. On Thursday the campers 
were up early for breakfast and to 
break camp. 

Jack Machen left in the rowboat but 
the wind and waves were so strong that 
they blew him across the lake and 
down to Sandy Cove. The canoes had 
little more success than the rowboat. 
Finally with the help of the motorboat 
— the canoes and rowboat were pulled 
into camp, while the boys walked 
around the edge of the lake. By 12 
o'clock everybody was accounted for 
and the trip was a success. — Grant 

July 3-5 

North Bunker and three councillors 
were the last to leave the KIEVE dock 

[31 ] 

for their campsite, Sandy Cove. Camp 
was set up while Mike Westcott, Tom 
Reynolds. Billy Baer and Chris Ross 
returned to camp to get a few forgot- 
ten things. When Mike and his crew 
came back everyone enjoyed the long 
awaited lunch. After lunch there was 
a rest period which was ended by the 
arrival of John Smith and his Hatch's 
Point boys. 

While we were all swimming. Dick 
and Henry Kennedy came to bring the 
mail. After a brief visit they departed, 
and were followed by Hatch's Point. 

While Mike Westcott and Ted 
Whitney were making dinner, and Jim 
Quinn was occupying the boys with 
rocks, a storm was threatening over- 
head. Fortunately the storm didn't 
hit. Dinner was eaten, and John Heyl 
came over from Windy Island to pay 
us a visit. 

Later that night John Heyl and Jim 
Quinn prevented one of Dick Koelle's 
traditional raids with amazing tactics. 

Bright and early the next morning 
the campers awoke the councillors. 
Breakfast was prepared and enjoyed. 
The rest of the morning was spent in 
various ways. Mac Keyser and Ned 
McKoy discovered a secret cove, 
Henry Wood managed to lose both 
oars while rowing, many injured them- 
selves on the "roller coaster." and John 
Clark did something I'd rather not dis- 

Again it was time to eat, and at 
lunch all the campers got their candy. 
Another rest was had and again John 
Smith ended it, but, with him this time 
was Dick Koelle and his Wood-Lot 

The rest of the afternoon was spent 
playing Orange-Black games. The 
games .broke up at dinner time, and 
another storm was overhead. THIS 

time it hit us, so dinner was eaten in 
the tent. 

When dinner was over. Jim Quinn 
and the campers set land mines for 
the expected raid from Windy Island. 
Mike Westcott and Ted Whitney re- 
tired early and were followed by Fred 
Moller. Harry Cabot, Tom Iglehart. 
and Nicky LeFevre. Jim Quinn and 
the rest waited for the raid that finally 

Since everyone was tired from the 
raid, we aU slept until 8:45. We had 
a late departure in terrible weather, 
but eleven wet campers and three tired 
councillors finally arrived at the 
KIEVE dock. — Ted Whitney. 

July 3-5 

Arriving at the new campsite about 
10:30 Tuesday morning we set up 
camp and got settled, after which we 
had lunch. After a short nap we 
canoed to Sandy Cove for a dip and 
to look over their campsite for a pos- 
sible raid. It took us twice as long 
to return home from the Cove due to 
high winds and a very rough lake. We 
had a great hamburger dinner, after 
which we put on the finishing touches 
to our jungle hammocks and then 
went to Wood-Lot to plot for our raid 


on Sandy Cove. After a niarshmallow 
roast and some ghost stories we left 
in five canoes. We managed to get 
as far as the cove where Camp Kicve 
is located when we heard a noisy row- 
boat approaching. We were unable to 
get into the shadows quickly enough 
and were caught red-handed by the 
councillors from Sandy Cove, and with 
pride hurt we returned home to a cup 
of hot chocolate and bed. 

Wednesday morning found us all 
sleeping late, but we managed to get 
up about 10:00, packed a lunch and 
with Wood-Lot went to Windy Island 
by canoe for a picnic. After a short 
dip and a paddle over to the Cove 
again we began the rough trip home 
which took about an hour and a half 
because of the winds. We arrived 
home in time for a hot stew dinner, 
after which we went to Wood-Lot for 
the evening of sailing, canoeing, ghost 
stories, hot chocolate and marshmal- 
lows. The weather remained quite 
windy and we decided against any raid 
for the night. 

Thursday morning we again got up 
late and taking one look at the rough 
lake and the black skies we broke 
camp as quickly as possible and 
headed for Camp Kieve. We made it 
just as the rain let loose, but only after 
a very hard paddle against the wind 
the entire way. 

Wednesday night before bed we 
had camp elections and as Miss 
Hatch's Point we found the perfect one 
— a person who managed to fall out 
of his jungle hammock several times 
in one night — our own Will Stettinius. 
For best camper we elected Larry Doe 
who even managed to spot a loon 
early Wednesday morning before any- 
one else was up. — John H. Smith. 


July 2-5 

NiNc hearty boys and two not so 
hardy councillors left camp on Mon- 
day morning with dreams of superb 
fishing one hundred and sixty miles 
up the road. A quick trip, three hours, 
brought us to our destination. The 
canoes were unloaded, and lunch was 
assembled, tasted and inhaled. A 
rough paddle followed as white caps 
were everywhere, and after wallet los- 
ing, canoe tipping, some flagrant uses 
of the English language, we were at 
our camp site, Getchell Point. Camp 
was set up quickly, and fishing began. 
We had much luck, and after a late 
hamburger dinner all went to bed 
eagerly. The next morning found the 
lake even choppier, and fishing was 
hard, so we paddled to an adjacent 
lake, Wabassus, and again found an 
ocean of waves. We had lunch and 
paddled to a new campsite, nearer 
known fishing spots. Again the 
weather held us back, but a nice catch 
was recorded. That night each pair of 
boys had a campfire, roasted marsh- 
mallows, and ghost stories were told. 
The next day we shoved ofi" for home, 
having caught sixty-seven fish, no 
colds, and an appreciation for the 
weather, wind and pickerel. Ricky 
Crecraft, and Stephen Michael walked 
off with most of the honors. Ricky 
was Miss Machias, and Most Helpful, 
while Stephen was Ma Machias and 
Grubbiest. — J. D. Kistler. 

July 3-5 

Eight campers from North Glenayr 
with Dick Koelle, and Corky Hart left 
camp for Wood-Lot at about 10:30 
A. M. Six campers and the two 
councillors made the trip in canoes, 


while Fred Levering and Pete Carn- 
age decided to use a Sailfish. After 
putting up the jungle hammocks and 
getting settled, the campers quickly 
consumed a lunch of sandwiches. The 
campers passed the afternoon sailing 
and swimming. Dick Koelle and five 
campers returned to camp to pick up 
forgotten candy, and get the mail. An 
excellent dinner of hamburgers, corn, 
and mashed potatoes by chef Dick 
Koelle was enjoyed by all. This was 
followed by an unexpected — but — 
friendly visit from South Clenayr. The 
councillors and campers of the two 
campsites planned a gigantic raid on 
Windy Island and Sandy Cove. After 
the departure of South Glenayr, Dick 
Koelle scared the campers with spine 
tingling stories, but right at the crucial 
moment of one of these legends the 
attention of the campers was attracted 
by female voices from across the lake. 
They spent the next half hour engag- 
ing. in conversation across the lake with 
their newly made acquaintances. The 
North Glenayr boys then heard voices 
from the brush and found Dick and 
Nancy, accompanied by John Heyl and 
Jim Quinn, two spies from Windy Is- 
land and Sandy Cove. At 11 P. M. 
the combined forces of Hatch's Point 
and Wood-Lot set out to attack Sandy 
Cove. Sandy Cove, however, had 
been warned, and the raid failed. The 
cold and unhappy campers returned to 
Hatch's Point for hot chocolate and 
dry clothes. The campers finally got 
to bed about 12:30 A. M. 

July 4 

The campers slept until 9:30 on the 
Fourth of July, being understandably 
tired after the previous night's fiasco. 
After breakfast the combined forces of 
Hatch's Point and Wood-Lot planned 
a friendly visit to Windy Island and 
Sandy Cove. The campers brought a 

picnic lunch to Windy Island and com- 
pared notes with their friends from 
South Bunker Hill. After visiting Sandy 
Cove, the Wood-Lot, and Hatch's 
Point groups returned home for a sup- 
per of spaghetti, salad and pudding. 
After dinner Geoff Nuckols lost his 
reading book and sent all the campers 
on a fifteen minute hunt for it. The 
book finally turned up in his jungle 
hammock — of all places. A campfire 
and elections followed. Geoff Nuckols 
again stole the show. When time came 
for nominating the best camper he said, 
"I think I was the best camper — sort 
of — ." Election results were as fol- 
lows: Best Camper — Fred Leverins; 
Sandiest — Geoff Nuckols; Miss Wood- 
Lot — Pete Gamage. 

July 5 

Dick Koelle awakened the campers 
with a 'TEXAS TWISTER" left over 
from the fourth and the campers had 
a feast. Half of the campers returned 
home in Dick Koelle's car while four 
campers and two councillors fought 
off wind and rain to make it home in 
canoes. — Dick Koelle. 

July 2-5 

July 2 — Our journey began this 
morning at 8:30 under a clear sky. 


All went smoothly until our portage 
into Pemaquid Pond. Here we learned 
that we were not hardened to the trail, 
but after the portage was completed 
the boys felt that the experience was 
worth-while. Lunch was the next stop 
and Rock Island was a perfect place. 
The wind was strong especially during 
our paddle after lunch. Wc pitched 
camp for the night on a beautiful point 
above the Pemaquid River. The day 
was complete with hamburger for din- 

July 3 — Our destination today was 
Fort Island. This is a long trip so 
we were up at six and well into the 
Pemaquid River by 8:30. To many 
of the boys paddling down a river was 
a new experience. Beaney LeFevrc 
and Buck King had never shot rapids 
before. Unfortunately the water level 
was down some and there were a few 
beaver dams which Tim Huston 
chopped away. After lunch we por- 
taged into salt water and found the 
going rough due to the high waves and 
strong wind. From the Pemaquid 
River we passed through the Gut into 
the Damariscotta River. While in the 
Gut we stopped in South Bristol and 
the boys spent their trip allowance. 
From here it was a quick paddle to 
Fort Island. We were all extremely 
tired and ready for a hearty dinner 
which consisted of ham basted with 
pineapple juice, potatoes, peas and 
milk. The boys were now improving 
on their canoemanship. John van 
Roden was awarded the paddling 
trophy for the day. After this we went 
to bed. 

July 4 — This was our day of rest and 
as Ches Yellott and Tom Supplee 
testified a much needed one. Every- 
thing was behind schedule especially 
meals. Fireworks was the order for 
the day and when evening came we 

ended the day with a beautiful display 
of buzz bombs and Roman candles. 
July 5 — At 8:37 we were paddling 
up the Damariscotta River with an in- 
coming tide. Our main ditticulty dur- 
ing the whole day was a forty mile an 
hour head wind which made our prog- 
ress slow. Personally I had never seen 
a harder wind to paddle against. Due 
to the extra effort of all the boys we 
were able to get past the Damaris- 
cotta bridge before the tide changed. 
When we reached the Mills at 3:30 
Don Weston was there with the truck 
to take us back to camp. The trip 
was a great success for the boys of 
North Harris. — Jim Gregory. 

July 3-5, 1962 
The chief purpose of this trip was to 
give paddling experience to the novices 
in South Harris who, without such 
prior experience were to spend the 
last three weeks of camp paddling in 
the Canadian wilderness. The de- 
sired practice was indeed obtained. 

Departure was set for nine, but 
forty minutes later after many tumps 
were appUed we set off. The first one 
and one-half mile portage was reached 


after a considerable length of time, at 
the rate of one mile per hour. Rich 
Yellott"s and Peter Betz's difficulty in 
finding the route, the wind, and Dave 
Scull s propensity to lay down his 
tumped canoe for constant readjust- 
ment made us late. 

After lunch the novices were placed 
in the stems of their respective canoes. 
What followed resembled the famed 
"random motion" of molecules, but 
luckily all the groups happened to 
come together, several lakes later at a 
beautiful campsite on Biscay Pond. 
New heights of luxury were obtained 
by the appropriation of jungle ham- 
mock spreader sticks thoughtfully left 
behind by the Pemaquid I trip. 

A dehcious hamburger dinner was 
chefed masterfully by Joe D* Antonio. 
A pair of female intruders was fought 
off by George Baker, though this only 
led to Dune Cocroft's surprise at al- 
most being caught in indehcate circum- 
stances. D\Antonio earned a hard luck 
reputation for the dubious value of his 
jungle hammock. 

Awake at 5:30 A. M.. the group 
reached the Pemaquid River quite 
quickly. They then managed to hit 
every rock in the river. Mojo Rick 
Koester walked almost as far as he 
rode, and bowman. Frank Shanbacker. 
almost died of frustration as his even, 
choice of direction led to a grating of 
rock against canoe. 

Once the ocean was reached, the 
group found clear sailing, hterally. to 
the extent that Yellott and Fenhagen 
were able to practice some tacking and 
heeling over with a jerry-rigged poncho 
for a sail. 

A swift opposing tide enlivened the 
approach to Fort Island, but all proved 
equal to the task. 

A warm welcome was received from 
all the members of the Pemaquid 1 
trip and especially Tim Huston, with 
his hearty "Gotchas." The trips be- 
came one as all performed very well 
against extremely difficult paddling. — 
Mike W'estcott.

July 15-22 

Early Sunday morning the twelve 
campers and the two councillors who 
comprised the West Branch (Penob- 
scot ) trip left for the Big Eddy. Much 
happened during this drive. Included 
in the events were the loss of food, 
the spilling of the peanut butter, two 
flat tires, the loss of an axe and a re- 
flector oven, and the WARNING, up- 
on our arrival at Big Eddy, that no 
one had made it down the river alive. 

Despite this generous advice by our 
astute well-wishers all were able to 
perk up enough courage to paddle 
across the river and set up camp. 
Then we and the bugs had dinner and 
went to bed. 

On Monday morning we arose at 
8:00 A. M., then ate breakfast, 
packed, and set out down the river. 
We shot the Upper Ambajackamus 
Falls, portaged around the lower falls, 
passed through the Horse Race, which 
is a series of swift pitches, and finally 
came into some smooth water known 
as the Sourdnahunk Deadwater. At 
the end of this quiet stretch of the 
river is the Sourdnahunk Falls. As 
we arrived at the portage trail which 
circumscribes the falls the weather 
threatened. Consequently we stopped 
short and tried to set up camp before 
the torrents came. We did not stop 
in time! Everyone was SOAKED and 
John Perkins had a swimming pool in 
his jungle hammock. At the end of 
the rain all spirits and wood were 
dampened. Hugh Nevin and Peter 
Betz were the wettest of all the camp- 
ers. In their blundering effort to help 
out they deftly swamped a canoe. 
After all this excitement an attempt 
at a fire was made. Finally a fire was 

a reality. Quickly spaghetti was put 
on to cook only to be spread all over 
the ground when Rick Koester kicked 
the pot. This achievement greatly in- 
fluenced the vote that was to name 
him, with Peter Betz, as Miss Penob- 

In order to heighten our spirits we 
slept late Tuesday morning. Before 
lunch we traveled down the river and 
completed portages around Abol Falls 
and Pockwockamus Falls. After 
lunch, during which Joe D'Antonio 
stood out in midstream on a rock to 
escape the bugs, we proceeded down 
the river towards Debsconeag Falls. 
Here we met two lovely maidens who, 
bathed in ignorance, misinformed us 
about the portage trail, caught and 
kept a four inch perch, and screeched 
at their flea ridden children and dogs. 
Finally, Bob Koelle discovered the 
portage trail and led the party through 
it. This allowed us to travel further 
down the river to a beautiful campsite 
on the Debsconeag Deadwater. 

Wednesday was a rest day. Every- 
one took advantage of the sunny 
weather and the beach to sun bathe. 
The accomplishments of the day in- 
cluded a sunburn by Alex Yearley, a 
chocolate chip cake by Kim Moller 
and Richy Yellott and a broken jungle 
hammock by the 'crammers.' Also 
seen were Hugh Nevin and Frank 
Shanbacker gabbing like old women. 
Other than this sight the only thing to 
mar the day was a brief thunderstorm. 

The biggest shock of all came on 
Thursday morning when the canoe 
trip ran into a huge log jam that was 
to halt all progress and force the trip- 
pers to return to their last campsite. 
Joe D'Antonio, Kim Moller, and Mike 
Westcott walked and thumbed their 


way into Millinocket from where they 
informed Dick Kennedy of their 
plight. The remainder of the group 
spent the day lounging around watch- 
ing Henr>' Fenhagen and Jay Perr\ 
plav cards, or John Rideout and Richy 
Yellott fish. This air of leisure marked 
the whole day. 

On Friday we were up and off to 
Camp KJeve by 11:00. In juxtaposi- 
tion to the ride up the ride back to 
Kieve was uneventful and smooth. 
We arrived at Kieve around 4:00 
P. M. All were tired but all had an 
appreciation of the majestic country 
we had just left. — Dave Scull. 


July 16-19 
The season s second Katahdin trip de- 
parted at the dim hour of 6:45. July 
16. and arrived at the site of con- 
quest around noon. Despite hea\y 
packs and numerous female distrac- 
tions along the way the group hiked 
3.3 miles to its base camp in a brief 
two and one-half hours. 

Hamburgers D\Antonio were wel- 
come, but the night-time pot wolloping 
bv Beanev LeFevre. Huehes Pack, and 

Frank \ an Dusen was truly unfortu- 

Tuesday saw the group at Baxter 
Peak by lunch. Cathedral Trail being 
the path of the ascent. Henr\ Fen- 
hagen and Bucky King proved them- 
selves highly durable climbers. After 
lunch we crossed Knife Edge under 
clear skies. A quick descent by the 
Dudley Trail brought us back to our 

A second ascent to the top was 
planned for Wednesday, but light rain 
and a hea\y o\ercast allowed the 
group to spelunk the Caves of Pamola. 
A full three-course dinner, including 
an enormous butterscotch pudding 
mixed up by Jim Quinn was con- 
sumed by hungr}" mouths. After des- 
sert elections were held. Miss Katah- 
din went to Ches Yellott: Best Hiker to 
Joe D" Antonio: Best Camper was 
Henx}- Fenhagen: Last but not least 
The Biggest Glutton imanimously 
awarded to Tom. the Bomb. Supplee. 

A sunny Thursday afforded a beau- 
tiful view from *'Blueberr}- Knoll." a 
side trip taken while we returned to 
our cars. The trip returned to camp 
happily, proud of their distinction as 
probably the only trip in Kieve's his- 
tor\ not to eat a single peanut butter 
and jellv sandwich. The councillors 
forgot the jelly. — Dane Scull. 


July 17-19 

John Perkins. John van Roden. Noel 
Fales. .Andy Sunon. Denny Emor\-. 
and Jack Kistler set off for the Third 
Machias Lake on Tuesday. After 
several stops for gee-dunk and ice. we 
ffnallv made our way to the Crater of 
the Moon Road and proceeded to find 
the Lake. After sening up camp and 
havins lunch we fished for five hours. 


catching forty-odd pickerel. A deli- 
cious dinner, tales ot bears, and stories 
we all settled down to a long summer's 
nap. Emory sat up all night looking 
for Sniokey but to no avail. 

The next day saw more fishing and 
exploring. At the day's end we had 
seventy-nine pickerel to our credit. 
We fished for chubs, helped a canoe 
party lift a dam gate, ate another fill- 
ing dinner, told even more stories, and 
again hit the sack. At three that 
morning a raccoon visited our hot 
chocolate can and scared us all as 
thoughts of the ever present bear were 
with us. After regaining composure 
we slept. The last day saw us pack, 
travel to First Machias Lake, and fish 
for two hours. Our grand total was 
then upped to eighty-eight fish. Dur- 
ing the trip home John van Roden 
copped most of the electoral honors. 
He was declared Miss Machias and 
Sandiest. Denny Emory was elected 
Best Fisherman, and John Perkins 
walked off" easily with Best Camper. 
Andy Sutton won "Amos and Andy" 
honors. All in all, a most fruitful trip. 
— John D. Kistler. 

July 17-19, 1962 

Council: Mike Westcott, Morrie Heck- 
scher, Jim Gregory, John Smith. Dick 
Koelle, Dune Cccroft. 

Campers: Freddy Moller. Nicky LeFevre, 
Billy Baer, Hen Wood. Chris Ross, Ned Mc- 
Koy, Tom Iglehart. Merritt Bedell. Graham 
Yearley. Mike Miller, Steven Nickless. 
Dixon Thayer. Phil Franke. Billy White. 
Duncan Ely. Jack Machen. Robby Richard- 
son. Jeff Slack. Watt Reynolds. Reed 
Shingle. Robby Fernald. Doug Reddy. Ter- 
ry Rhoads. Charlie Behlmer. Larry Doe, 
Willie Stettinius. 

As THE climax of days of preparation 
by a most competent staff of six vet- 
eran trippers our party of twenty-six 
— minus one unfortunately sick, Larry 
Doe — campers, the South Glenayr 

bears led by Jim and Dick, and the 
Bunker Hills led by Mike, John, Mor- 
rie, and Dune, drove olY on a glorious 
morning for the White Mountains and 
Dolly Copp campsite. 

Arriving in time for a fashionable 
lunch of peanny-bue-and-jay (what 
else?), the campers showed the rather 
impressive amount that they had 
learned while on their first trips this 
year by setting up their jungle ham- 
mocks and personal campsites by 

Being ofticially designated a "rest 
day," it was no wonder that a rather 
lazy atmosphere permeated the en- 
campment. Never was the day of 
WPA like this, as the woods suc- 
cumbed to the scavenging of wood- 
hunters and excited reports of the find- 
ing of the fabled beaver dam of 
Smokey the Bear. As smoke wafted 
the odors of a blessed meal by Father 
John, all filled up on a terrific meal 
of hamburg, onions, mushrooms, and 
potatoes. It was plenty, for only Billy 
Baer, Merritt Bedell, and of course 
speedy Chris Ross were enough awake 
for after-dinner cocoa and campfire. 
So ended the first day. 

We were up by six, with a few vital 
exceptions. A Koelle breakfast of 
home-fries and the works allowed us 
to hop into our cars and be off for the 
big chmb at a refreshing 10:45 A. M. 
The Bunker Hillers went together to 
Randolph where the Air Line Trail to 
Mts. Madison and Adams commenced. 
Crossing the ditch for a Texas gas 
pipeline, into which only Iglehart, Mol- 
ler and Yearley fell, all ascended a 
pleasant trail through fabulous woods. 
Stopping for lunch when many worms 
were crying and some had had more 
of a taste of mountain climbing than 
others, we split up — John leading back 
by another trail ten of the boys, and 


Mike and Morrie continuing on with 
Ross. Ely, Miller. Machen. Thayer, 
and Franke. The views awaiting these 
toilers made all effort most worth- 

Jim"s hardy crew walked to Lone- 
some Lake in the middle of a cloud- 
burst. From here they found a new 
route to Cannon Mountain. The boys 
were exposed to some challenging 
climbing, from which Charlie Behlmer, 
to name one. really advanced a lot. 
The view of magnificent clouds and 
of Franconia Notch made this foray of 
South Glenayr's most exciting and 
worth-while. Finally, one must not for- 
get Reed Shingle's lovely pose after 
missing a turn when running down the 
mountain for two miles. 

Back to the campsite after an im- 
pressive first taste (for most) of moun- 
tain climbing. Big Greg produced his 
ham special supper, after which camper 
and councillor alike refused to evade 
the sack when it was so appealing. 

Surrounded by hoards of woodsy 
girls who had violated our sanctuan^ 
during the night, we awoke, cooked a 
big breakfast, and leisurely took off for 
the candy store and then baths and a 
real bed back at Kieve. So ended a 
trip that gave all a real glimpse of 
mountain climbing, and to those who 
desired it. the spectacular rewards 
available. — Morrie Heckscher. 

July 16-19 
Monday morning immediately after 
breakfast, three wanigans. five canoes, 
fifteen packs, and fifteen men were off 
for a truncated Pemaquid trip. 

.A.t Pemaquid Pond we launched 
ourselves and after an effortless pad- 
dle to Biscay Pond we set up our first 
campsite. A threatening cloud pro- 
vided the impetus for a hasty setting 

up of jungle hammocks. After lunch 
the rains came, lightning flashed, and 
thunder roared. 

Tuesday saw the party portage Bris- 
tol Mills, spend their allowance, and 
an African Queen adventure on the 
Pemaquid River. Crecraft made his 
quarter into the purchasing power of 
SI. 75. Nancy arrived that evening 
with ice cream and cake. It's ahvays 
nice to rough it. 

The next day saw the group attack 
large waves, which eventually brought 
them to Fort Island. Alas we were 
sharing the island with a girFs camp. 
Ewmg Walker broke the ice for a 
pleasant evening. 

The last day saw a rough and tough 
sojourn up the Damariscotta River. 
Aunt Harriet and Don picked us up 
at Walker's house, and we entered 
camp after a wonderful trip, weU 
worth the hard work of the last day. 
Best Camper was Aubrey Huston; 
Most Helpful was Jay Brown; Greed- 
iest to Ricky Crecraft, and Miss Pema- 
quid to Stephen Michael. — Hill Fer- 


July 30-Aug. 1 

At 10:30 A. M. Monday, July 30th 
the Fort Island trip departed from the 
Walker's house on the Damariscotta 
River. Three stops later and four and 
a half hours of paddling, ten boys, 
four councillors and five canoes ar- 
rived at Fort Island in Boothbay Har- 

Tuesday morning at 1 1 : 00 the 
group made a trip to scenic Seal Cove 
in three canoes. Upon returning a hot 
lunch was served after which we all 
left for East Boothbay and a spending 
spree in the nearest candy store, and 


to see the boat yards there. We re- 
turned in a thick fog at 6:00 tor din- 
ner, but not before Will Stettinius and 
a few others had gone wading and 
caught enough crabs to cook lor an ap- 

The morning of Wednesday, August 
2 greeted us with an extremely thick 
fog. After a breakfast of bacon and 
eggs the morning activity became ex- 
ploring the Island. During the after- 
noon the skies cleared for an hour or 
so and some canoeing and war began. 
Before anyone realized it Terry 
Rhoads was swept away with the cur- 
rent with clothes and all — but not be- 
fore speedy Jeff Slack and Robby 
Richardson had thrown their canoe 
into 1st gear and pulled Terry in to 

Thursday was a beautiful, sunny 
day and after a very early breakfast 
we began the five and a half hour pad- 
dle back up the Damariscotta River 
with a good stiff head-wind. Finally 
we pulled into Damar. Mills where we 
were picked up by Don Weston and 
driven back to camp. — John Smith. 

July 30-Aug. 1 

Amid cloudy weather we pulled out 
Monday morning for the White Moun- 
tains. The drive to the mountains was 
uneventful except that we didn't take 
the Route that we had planned to take. 
At 3:30 we arrived at the Dolly Copp 
campground and leisurely pitched 
camp. This being the first night on 
the trail we had the traditional ham- 
burger dinner. In order that the boys 
might better their skills in the art of 
camping we let them cook most of the 
meals under our supervision. 

We were up early and ready to 
climb by 8 : 00 but much to our dismay 

rain immediately came. Mt. Adams 
would not be climbed today. We had 
more rain this morning than many 
states receive in a month — 2" 
(inches). When the rain let up we 
piled into the cars and took a short 
drive to Berlin and then through 
Franconia Notch where it was too 
cloudy to see the Old Man of the 
Mountain. By this time we were just 
leaving the fragrant aroma of paper 
pulp. To end this scenic drive we re- 
turned via the Kancamagus highway 
reaching the elevation of 2895' (feet). 
While preparing dinner this evening 
Stephen Michael sat on his log where 
he was harmless. The speciality of 
this meal was Dick Koelle's salad and 
Paul Newlin's wonderful spaghetti. 

Early to bed and early to rise with 
dreams of Mt. Washington dancing in 
their eyes. (Say, that rhymes.) We 
were on the trail by 9:00 under beau- 
tiful skies. At 10:15 we reached the 
ranger's station which gave us our first 
view of the Head Wall. We were now 
ready for the big climb. While follow- 
ing a mountain stream we were soon 
at the foot of the Head Wall where 
Ewing Walker, Ricky Crecraft, Aub 
Huston, and Geoff Nuckols had to be 
dissuaded from a snowball fight. 
From the Head Wall to the Summit we 
reached the top in 45 mins. Our total 
climbing time from the highway to the 
top was 3V2 hours. It was a tre- 
mendous and beautiful climb. 

After a traditional Gregory ham 
supper, the boys had their elections 
along with marshmallows and cocoa. 
Miss Martha Washington was Jon 
Piper and Jay Brown was best camper. 
Tom McKoy was named most helpful 
by the council. 

And our FLAG was still there . . . 
— Dick Koelle.

July 31 -Aug. 2 

Elenen eager boys from South 
Bunker Hill departed from Round 
Pond on July 31 where they were met 
by a lobster boat, and taken over to 
their island campsite. All came 
equipped with spreader sticks, packs, 
and plenty of energy. A huge lunch 
of peeny-boo and J was inhaled by the 
group. After a rest period several of 
the group, led by John Heyl. explored 
the island. Another group explored 
and found a treasure of lobster at a 
nearby pound. Yearley. Franke. Be- 
dell. Harper, and Peter Moore com- 
bined their allowance and had a crus- 
tacean feast right there on the beach. 

\'isits were exchanged the next day 
between the two camps. Rowboating. 
clam digging, and explorations oc- 
cupied the fellows for most of the day. 
Spaghetti and ghost stories all made us 
rest comfortably. Phil Franke copped 
honors as Best Camper. 

The trip back the next day was 
beautiful as Mother Nature did her 
best to make us remember this lovely 
spot, in the ocean, off the rock-bound 
Maine coast. — Corky Hart. 

North Bunker Hill with Dick Ken- 
nedy, Jim Quinn and Tim Huston left 
for Loud"s Island on Tuesday morning 
under fog and cloudy skies. Spirits 
were high however with the prospect 
of a boat ride to the island. Imme- 
diately upon disembarking. Dick or- 
dered the jungle hammocks put up as 
rain seemed imminent. Tim and Dick 
readied fried spam sandwiches while 
the campers collected driftwood and 
raised hammocks. After lunch the 
group split into two groups: one being 
headed by Billy Baer. and John Clark 
the other. There was feverish fort 

building at either end of the beach 
until Clark's boys found a giant de- 
posit of clay. For the next half hour 
a clay slinging battle raged up and 
down the beach with each side charg- 
ing until exhausted. 

A hamburger supper was welcomed 
by hungry mouths, after which ghost 
stories and bed. That evening Fred 
Moller screamed several times as some 
lobstermen must have as they dreamt 
of Kieve near pots. 

Skinny dipping, sunbathing and 
camp visiting occupied the second day. 
A clam hunt was of most importance, 
and Harry Cabot won honors with 
many species. That evening there 
were more stories and visits from 
Campsite =1. 

The next morning found a beautiful 
day. and a lovely trip home. Gee- 
dunk was bought with the allowances, 
and the trip back to camp was accom- 
phshed in a short time. All the boys 
were ready and willing workers, es- 
peciallv our euest David York. — Jim 

July 28-August 3. 1962 
A CLEAR, sunny Saturday marked the 
beginning of the Dead River Trip, the 
projected 12 day. 17 man. 150 mile 
long voyage for the North Harris boys. 

But misfortune began early to take 
its toll, as Bucky King was forced to 
return from the starting point on Lake 
Flagstaff' in the same truck in which 
he had forgotten to load his pack. 

Once under way. and after some 
slight confusion as to direction was 
cleared up. a quick two-hour paddle 
brought the group to an attractive 
sandy landing place, with nearly ideal 
sites for jungle hammocks, tents and 
fireplace, and a virtuallv unlimited 
supply of dr\' driftwood for fuel. 


The first in a long series of appetiz- 
ing Westcott-cooked meals was fol- 
lowed by a gala songfest under still 
elear skies, amidst the beautiful Bige- 
low Mountains. Pete Betz enjoyed an 
evening of glory and distinction for 
having started the fire with only one 

The group departed refreshed and 
under favoring winds, paddled to the 
lake's end at Flagstaff Dam. Tom 
Supplee and Ches Yellott were two 
winners of the day-long unofticial ca- 
noe race. 

Varied bits of information about 
Dead River were garnered from per- 
sons in the area, though none was 
really satisfying or convincing, and it 
was agreed to attempt a 2-mile por- 

The next morning a friendly pas- 
serby agreed to conduct most of the 
portage in his truck, leaving for us only 
a % mile walk with empty canoes; and 
in some cases the available manpower 
permitted the employment of three 
men on a single canoe. 

An uneventful portage was followed 
by a swim in the rapids and a very 
eventful afternoon, and evening, and 
night. Seven miles of easy downstream 
paddling brought us to the decaying 
Dead River Dam, through which it 
was impossible to drag the canoes. 
Another quarter mile of level rapids 
brought us to the fifty foot Grand 
Falls. The search for a portage trail 
necessitated dragging back up to the 
dam, and crossing the river at a milder 
place. But this operation was some- 
what hampered by a 2-hour downpour. 
Camp was finally made beneath pines 
surrounding a seasonally vacant log- 
ging camp, on a bank overlooking the 
dam. Dinner was finished by torch- 
light at 11 P. M. Pots were left un- 

A drizzily Tuesday became a rest 
day, interrupted only by three hot 

Despite foreboding weather the next 
morning, the portage was made and 
the river once again encountered. Fast 
water and a profusion of rocks soon 
cost trip leader, Mike Westcott, a 
punctured canoe, his own pack, and all 
the kitchen equipment, though they 
provided bowman, Frank Van Dusen 
with a tale to tell his grandchildren. 
This loss necessitated a return to 
campsite just left, where ample use 
was made of the available facilities, 
including two wood burning stoves, 
and the picturesque, sanitary facili- 

An extra day of sun, fun, food, and 
loafing did service to console the group 
for its uncompleted trip. A two hour 
paddle upstream the next day brought 
us back into touch with civilization 
and Kieve. 

Despite bad luck and major unfore- 
seen difficulties, the trip was under- 
taken with a spirit of adventure and 
discovery, and constituted an enjoy- 
able experience for all. — Dave Scull. 


July 24-August 14, 1962 
The trip began at 7:00 A. M., July 
24 for Canada. However, its progress 
was halted within the first half-hour 
because of a flat tire. The tire was 
quickly changed and we rolled mer- 
rily on our way. The trip was 750 
miles in length all the way to Senne- 
terre, Canada. Here we boarded a 
bush train and went to Kapatachouane 
Club. This was a deserted logger's 
town but the base camp to which we 
were headed was nearby. 

The next day we went by canoe to 
the second base camp with our trip 


leader, Ames Luce, the doctor, Dick 
Frankle, and a J. C, Bob King. We 
then learned how to tump wanigans 
and canoes, paddle, and use an axe. 

The following day we paddled to 
Little Kapatachouane Lake and 
camped for the night. The next few 
days saw us paddle through Five Mile 
Bay, visit a trapper, trip the Kapata- 
chouane River, visit Len's forestry 
tower, shoot rapids, portage, enjoy 
rest stops, shoot more rapids, and 
wreck a canoe in doing so. 

After two days' rest to repair the 
canoe we started our return to base 
camp. We made the mile portage to 
Traverse Creek, paddled down stream 
until we came to Camachigama River. 
After completing this River we had 
a rest day. We soaked up the sun, 
fished and had a good rest. 

During the next two days we pad- 
dled and lined up-river until we came 
to a series of dreaded portages — a two 
miler and three half milers. After 
those portages the going was easy. 
Kim Moller bought a Siberian Huskie 
from a trapper who was promptly 
named Nicky. We ended our trip in 
another day, and Rich Yellott was 
named Best Camper. 

George Baker, Joe D'Antonio, 
Henry Fenhagen, Ricky Koester, Hugh 
Nevin, Frank Shanbacker, Alex Year- 
ley, Rich Yellott, Kim Moller and Jay 
Perry are to be congratulated for turn- 
ing in a wonderful trip. It will be re- 
membered by all, a trip that many will 
never have a chance to take. — Dunc

The Log 




Jim; 26, 1962— M. Westcott 

After many days of preparatory 
work the council, on Tuesday morn- 
ing, made final provisions for the ar- 
rival of the campers. While Dick 
Kennedy met many of the campers in 
Philadelphia, Dave Scull, Jack Kistler, 
Nancy Kennedy and Dick Koelle 
readied themselves for the trip to Bos- 
ton where the remainder of the boys 
were picked up. At nine o'clock the 
drivers left, and the rest of the coun- 
cil contemplated the influx. 

Such thoughts were soon interrupted 
by the ascendance of some early ar- 
rivals. Except for a few of these the 
day was relatively free from the yells 
and screams of the campers. This si- 
lence was abruptly broken at seven 
o'clock when the first of the Boston 
cars appeared on top of the hill. Fast 
and furious was the pace of incoming 
vehicles until the Philadelphia bus, the 
last of the transports, arrived at eight 

As soon as the campers alighted on 
the Kieve soil they were told where to 
go and went. Next they were sum- 
moned to dinner, and after the meal — 
sent to bed. In the process they man- 
aged to make their presence known to 
all. Finally, however, all noise was 
quelled and the camp fell asleep — end- 
ing a most hectic day. 
June 27, 1962 — John Smith 

The first full day of camp began 
this morning at 7:15. The morning 
was taken up with a tour of the camp 
for the new KIEVE campers, and a 
physical for all by the nurse who was 
accused by some of the boys as being 
nosey. Everyone unpacked and had 
their first swim in the crystal clear 

water of Lake Damariscotta. During 
the day the following boys made the 
difhcult 600 yard swim to the Island: 

W. Baer W. Stettinius P. Moore 

H. Cabot J. Slack B. King 

N. Fales N. McKoy B. LeFevre 

S. Nickless J. Clark J. D'Antonio 

S. Pack S. Harper T. McKoy 

H. Wood H. Fenhagen C. Ross 

P. Gamage C. Behlmer D. Ely 

And our own Will Stokes, who with a 
couple of the other councillors led the 
camp in singing about Good Old 
Florida U. at the camp fire after din- 

In the afternoon football game "The 
Supplees" smashed the "Mollers" with 
a score of 20-2, and Supplee himself 
made two touchdowns. The council- 
lors actively supervised the game! 
Other activities during the day in- 
cluded a couple of tennis games, some 
horse-shoes, shop, canoeing, volley- 
ball, and of course a fishing trip with 
Jack Kistler which didn't make out 
quite as well as it sometimes does. 
The day closed with a campfire on the 
water front with a marshmallow roast 
and songfest. Taps were sounded at 
8:30 and the camp came, as usual, 
to a quick and dead SILENCE? 

June 28, 1962 — J. Gregory 

Our day began at 7:30 with a clear 
sky. After the duties were completed, 
the campers plunged into the morning 
activities. Hill Ferguson passed Watt 
Reynolds, Ricky Koester, Jon Piper 
and Mac Keyser on their Island swim. 
Bob Koelle and John Heyl worked 
with the new campers on rifiery. 
Grant Dunn took some boys out fish- 
ing while Dick Koelle and Dune Co- 
croft supervised a volleyball game. 
After a much needed rest period all 


the campers were ready for an after- 
noon of activities. Fred Levering. 
Peter Betz. and Stephen Michael found 
sailing quite exciting due to a 12 MPH 

Morrie Heckscher gave beginning 
tennis instruction to the boys who had 
never played before. The afternoon 
ended with a little humor. Dune Co- 
croft and his boys at the archery field 
lost 9 arrows. Not bad for the first 

After a dehcious roast beef dinner 
the day ended with a movie and then 
to bed. 

JLNE 29. 1962 — Grant W. Dunn 

The loud ringing of the gong awoke 
the camp at 7:30 A. M. Bright eyed 
and bushy tailed campers hurried to 
wash and get prepared for flag raising 
and breakfast. After breakfast duties 
were assigned and at 9:15 the first 
laundry call was made. By Indian 
circle all bunkhouses had reported 
with their laundn, baskets. 

The results of the activities of note 
were that Willie Stettinius. John 
Clark. Jeff Slack, won their white ar- 
rows in archery, and Rob Femald 
won his red arrow. The water front 
was the site of the biggest naval battle 
since the Second World War. All of 
the canoes and two rowboats were 

After a tasty lunch and rest period 
the afternoon activities began with a 
fever pitch. Down on the ball field 
a grudge game was being fought tooth 
and nail. The result of this furious 
battle was that the \'ictory Wreath 
was awarded to South Harris which 
scored a 10-5 triumph over North 
Harris. The waterfront was again 
the site of another naval engagement 
with the results beins the same as the 

morning's. In the evening Madison 
Square Garden in Innisfree was the 
scene of many hard fought boxing and 
wrestling matches. The highlight of 
the evening was a wrestling match be- 
tween the Overweight Champion of 
the World. Councillor Grant Dunn, 
and the Undenveight Champion of 
Camp Kieve. Geoffrey Nuckols. After 
two hard fought periods the deter- 
mination of Geoff' Nuckols began to 
tell and after 30 seconds of the third 
period he took the full measure of 
Grant Dunn by pinning him to the 
mats. A rematch has been scheduled. 

After the evening activities the flag 
was lowered, the camp sang songs, and 
camp was declared secure at 8:30. 

June 30. 1962— Dick Koelle 

Today dawned warm. hazy, and 
humid — and stayed that way. Duties 
were followed by a critical inspection, 
which was amazingly good, consider- 
ing the early stage of the season. 
There was a full slate of activities, 
with the debut of Nature. Hughes 
Pack shot his Pro-Marksman, while 
Jeff Slack and Will Stettinius got their 
Black Arrows. Iglehart's Eagles 
stomped Koester's Coasters. 3-1 in 
volleybaU. At Franklin Field. Frank 
\'an Dusen and Robby Richardson led 
the Wombats to a 14-2 grid victory 
over the Potatoes. 

During swim. Alec Yearley proved 
the difference as the Blacks prevailed 
in \\ ater Polo. 3-1. 

The afternoon saw Andy (or is it 
Willie ) Sutton and Beany LeFevre get 
their White Arrows: Robby Femald 
shoot Bar I and Robby Richardson. 
Bar III: and Freddy Nloller sit in a 
canoe. The feature attraction was a 
soccer game between Miller's High 
Lifes and Fenhagen's Finks. Paul 


Ncwlin, Ricky Crccraft, and hlcct 
Ferguson led the High Lifes to a 3-1 
score. After supper, the O. D. made 
a mistake — Capture the Flag. The 
cries of "One-two-three caught" were 
soon drowned out by, "He cheated." 
The game was declared void and we 
hit the sack. 

July 1, 1962 — Dick Kennedy 

The day dawned threatening, but 
soon the wind swung around to the 
North West, assuring us of another 
crystal clear day. 

After duties and tub all cabins stood 
the first full scale inspection, and all 
were in remarkably fine shape. How- 
ever North Harris was a bit better 
than the rest, so they got the ice cream 

The highlight of the chapel service 
was John Smith's fine, effective talk 
in which he used the familiar New 
Testament story of "the loaves and 
fishes" to illustrate a Christian's duty 
— generosity. The back was inadver- 
tently left on the organ so the weak 
but willing choir was not at peak ef- 

Mike Westcott and Bob Koelle con- 
ducted a jungle hammock clinic which 
was followed by a touch football game, 
gale force wind sailing, archery, riflery, 
tennis, and preparation for the forth- 
coming trips. 

Throughout supper the air was tense 
with expectancy about the first Orange- 
Black council clash. Alas the issue 
was left unresolved at the end of the 
bitter struggle — an 11-11 standoff. 
Janet Dunn, Johnny van Roden, and 
Tom Supplee, the umpires, were the 
most polished performers on the dia- 

Flag, prayers, and an enthusiastic 
rendition of the Kieve Song and cheer 
completed the first week at camp. 

C. O. D. LOG 1962 
July 2, 1962 — Monday — 
Dick Kennedy 

Another beautiful day! — The Mt. 
Katahdin trippers breakfasted early 
and shoved oft' for the highest moun- 
tain (1 Mile) in Maine at 6:30. 

After breakfast the first Pemaquid 
River trip and the anglers bound for 
the Machias Lakes departed, leaving 
a skeleton crew behind. 

John Smith alternately entertained 
and nauseated us with a very profes- 
sional dissection of "Yummy's" previ- 
ous night's catch, a woodchuck. Don 
and Polly served us a most delicious 
picnic lunch outside, and after a rather 
unruly rest period, activities were un- 
der a full head of steam. John Clark 
qualified for his Pro-Marksman, Stu 
Harper, Noel Fales, and others braved 
the white caps with sailor, John Mc- 
Cord, and a soccer game ensued in 
which Fenhagen's Furious Fusiliers 
bested D'Antonio's Dawdling Dilet- 
tantes, — 3-1 . 

After supper all remaining in camp 
packed for the morrow's trips — and 
then to bed. 

July 6, 1962— Grant W. Dunn 

A cold, windy morning greeted the 
campers when they were awakened at 


Duties followed the usual hearty 
breakfast. Everyone did their job 
well. The morning activity period 
produced a baseball game in which 
Pete Gamage's Garbage Mouths beat 
Paul Newlin's Nuts 3 to 1. Billy 
White led the losers in base hits, but 
it wasn't enough to offset the power 
of John Clark who drove in two runs. 
Down at the Archery field Watt Rey- 
nolds and Stu Harper qualified for 
their White Arrows. 

In the afternoon on the football 
field Mac Keyser"s Canadian Bush- 
men defeated Billy White's Bar-room 
FHes 20 to 0. 

In the evening a scavenger hunt was 
held. The pace was fierce but North 
Glenayr returned first with all the ar- 
ticles. They received a chocolate 
layer cake as first prize. 

After taps a pillow fight erupted on 
the tennis courts with South Harris 
holding its own against the rest of the 

By 9 o'clock the campers were at 
rest and the O. D. declared camp se- 

July 7. 1962 — Dick Koelle 

We just slept late this morning, and 
had a bad dream. I don't believe in 
the morning of July 7. 1962 — I don't: 
I don't . . . 

The weather seemed cloudless and 
calm: after days of heavy wind. Then 
three minutes before reveille, the 
O. D. noticed the absence of his note 
pad — panic! Soon plague struck, with 
campers and councillors trotting to 
the bank and to the nurse for Kaopec- 

Shortly just before inspection, the 
O. D. fell victim to the plague — 
simultaneously — FIRE! (The incin- 
erator fire spread but was quicklv 
stamped out. ) Inspection was late and 

LOUSY. Three cabins failed. At 
this time. Levering. Newlin. Crecraft, 
and Walker '"volunteered" to clean 
up the bank to withstand the heavy 

There was a soccer game, and NO- 
BODY got hurt, however, upon walk- 
ing to the Council Shack. Mad Painter 
Kistler could be seen attacking this 
poor helpless building. What could 
possibly happen next? Well . . . 

The still wind became furious, 
swamping the white duck and snap- 
ping the mast of the gray duck. Di- 
rector Kennedy was seen staring 
across the lake. 

Otherwise, nothing much happened 
today, except that three took part in 
optional swim, and the Dusens beat 
the Rodens in Football. 6 touchdowns 
to 4. 

Fight night was covered by radio 
and the movies. Victors in wrestling 
were N. McKoy. Crecraft. F. Moiler. 
Supplee. Harper, and the team of T. 
McKoy and Supplee. 

We saw two classic boxing bouts 
with Michael clipping Reddy. and 
Lott and Koester blasting out a draw.

A warm day greeted late risers, and 
after a pancake throwing meal chores 
were accomplished, inspection pre- 
pared for. tub taken and inspection 
completed. South Glenayr was nearly 
spotless, and the reward was theirs. 
John Smith gave the camp an inspir- 
ing message with the story of Mark's 
thoughtfulness of others. 

A dinner of steak and french fries 
made the day even brighter as we 
were joined for dinner by Harry Ca- 
bot's mother and several friends of 


Many activities were enjoyed fol- 
lowed by a long swim. Hot dogs and 
watermelon graced our outdoor tables 
which were hurriedly consumed so 
that all could get a glimpse of the su- 
perb councillor volleyball game. The 
Oranges dominated the tilt, but the 
Blacks were all pulling their corks in 
attempt of an upset. A refreshing 
dip, followed by taps, ended a pleasant

Dick Kennedy 

A threatening dawn greeted us, but 
the rain held off for a full range of 
morning activities. The rifles were 
smoking with the following results: 

Denny Emory, Bar III; Larry Doe, 
Bar 11; Ricky Crecraft, Bar I; and the 
following got their Pro-Marksman: 
Ned McKoy, Jonnie Piper, Tommy 
Reynolds, and Dune Ely. Outstand- 
ing among the neophyte sailors were 
Mike Miller and Graham Yearley, and 
the volleyball court witnessed a torrid 
tie between Van Dusen's Dandies and 
Pack's Prissies. 

The afternoon was divided between 
rehearsals for the forthcoming bunk- 
house skits and a closely contested 
Orange-Black field day. The highlight 
of the latter, won by the Blacks 3-2, 
was the wheelbarrow race which came 
right down to the wire; Pete Gamage 
and Tom McKoy nosed out Ricky 
Crecraft and Frank Van Dusen. 

[51 ] 

The evening's skits, ably judged by 
Mr. and Mrs. Stokes (an old vaude- 
ville team), and Nancy ran mostly to 
blood and thunder as the titles will 
show: North Harris (the winner) — 
"Sleeping Sickness": North Glenayr — 
"Ping-Pong the Monster'": South 
Bunker Hill — "Jack the Ripper": 
South Glenayr — "People vs. Floyd

Today the eighth man on the regu- 
lar seven man O. D. team had his first 
opportunity to perform. 

Dawn made a subtle appearance be- 
tween the clouds and showers. So 
subtle that the O. D. overslept and 
allowed the troops an extra fifteen 
minute slumber. 

Respect was then paid to the Stars 
and Bars which had been noctumally 
hoisted by the daring Supplee and van 

Activities were restricted by the ele- 
ments. Even with this handicap Jim 
Gregor}- held his first saihng regatta. 
Captain Bhihe Emor\ and Miller are 
to be congratulated for their accom- 
plished performances afloat. .\lso 
Junior Lifesavers desene praise as all 
passed their prehminary qualif\ing 

After much pseudo-discord the 
O. D. consented to the pathetic pleas 
of Koelle and Kisder and extended 
rest period enabling all to hear or 
watch the All-Star Game. A comoul- 
sor\' swim followed a rather abbre- 
viated activity period. 

John Smith announced to the camp 
that our youngest member of the 

Kieve family, Kieve IX, had died, and 
that apparently the entire contingent 
of fawns given to various camps by 
the State of Maine had been a sickly 
brood for all deer issued to date had 
died. Peter Wallace was thanked for 
the excellent care he save to our 
Kieve IX. 

The night's activities were high- 
lighted by Lady Godiva Stettinius* 
prance through the woods and other 
eyecatching feats. Prayers, flag and 
tub ended the dav. Thanks, but hum- 
back Mike! 

Wednesday. July 11. 1962— 
John Smith 

Dawn brought one of the most 
beautiful and warmest days of the 
season. .Aiter flag and duties, the 
morning activities began and ever}one 
went into them with determination. 
The volleyball game between the 
Behlmer Fangs and the Crecraft 
Droop-a-longs proved to be a close 
one. but the Fangs managed to win 
4 of the 5. Other activities were foot- 
ball. archer\\ tennis, sailing and 
Junior Hfesaving. 

The morning and afternoon swims 
were both lengthened to a full hour 
each and aU enjoyed the nice warm 
lake. The afternoon activities were 
again tennis, sailing, archen.-. Junior 
lifesaving and football. After diimer 
there was an Orange-Black volleyball 
game which turned out to be a draw, 
but in the Orange-Black football 
game, the Orange definitely had the 
field in a 24-6 victor\\ 

Day ended with another swim and 

Thursday. July 12. 1962— 
Jim Gregory 

We were greeted by fair skies at 
7:30 this morning, but. not everxlhing 
was cheers. George Baker had to 


leave camp this morning due to doc- 
tor's orders and will not be able to 
return this summer. We gave him a 
locomotive before he left. George, 
we hope to see you back next year! 
The highlight in activities this morn- 
ing occurred in the nature shack. 
Another garter snake was caught 
which gives us a grand total of three. 

Because of the hot weather we were 
all ready for rest period, but soon the 
campers were back into afternoon ac- 
tivities. Hill Ferguson conducted a 
class in Junior lifesaving for the Red 
Cross. Morrie Heckscher, with help 
from a few campers completed the 
third tennis court, and down at the 
waterfront Dune Cocroft, Denny 
Emory and I finished painting the gray 

When dinner time came I noticed 
a storm moving in from the N. E. 
We need rain badly. Let's hope we 
get some. After dinner we watched 
the traditional Thursday night movie 
and then to bed — thus closing another 
memorable day at Kieve. 

Friday. July 13, 1962— 
Grant Dunn 

Today was the first really wet day 
that the campers have experienced this 
year. The rain subsided long enough 
for duties and a few minutes of ac- 
tivities. The main morning activity 
was a bombardment game between 
the Black and Orange. The Black 
won all four games. 

Most of the afternoon was con- 
sumed by a long rest period. A swim 
was called for and enjoyed by all the 

At dinner we sang "happy birthday" 
to Bucky King, and also "happy anni- 
versary" to Mr. and Mrs. Stokes, in 
celebration of their twenty-fifth wed- 
ding anniversary. 

In the evening boxing and wrestling 
matches were held. In boxing Stu 
Harper T.K.O.'d Will Stettinius; Billy 
Baer T.K.O.'d Ned McKoy; Steve 
Michael T.K.O.'d Tom McKoy; and 
John Perkins decisioned Ches Yellott. 

The wrestling matches were as fol- 
lows: Tom Supplee pinned Noel Fales; 
Stu Harper and Mike Miller drew and 
Kim Moller defeated Hugh Nevin in a 
close 3-2 decision. 

After the bouts the camp song was 
sung, the campers retired to their 
bunks, and a rainy day at Kieve was 

Saturday, July 14, 1962 — 
Dick Koelle 

Yesterday afternoon's cloud-scud 
coagulated into an unbroken sullen 
overcast, and a weeping drizzle of rain 
increased in volume and fury as the 
day wore on. 

The curtailed morning activities in- 
cluded riflery, shop, fishing, fort build- 
ing and sleeping at South Harris. 

South Harris covered cabins during 
rest, as the councillors made a belated 
attempt to rehearse for their show in 
the evening. 

A football game featured the after- 
noon activities with Walker's Walruses 
defeating Hetherington's Hogs, 24 to 
12. Supplee and Van Roden starred 
for the Walruses. 

Dinner was immediately followed by 
a choose-up game of capture the Flag. 
Ricky Crecraft and Pete Gamage 
were captains. This preceded the 
Annual Council Musical Show. Lines 
were forgotten, and ignored, but the 
rock 'n' roll, folk beat, and hillbilly 
groups swinging (on rope); Alley- 
Oopers, beautiful dancing girls (wives 
and baby sitters) and less than beau- 
tiful bikini girls (Kistler, Kennedy, 
Stokes, and Dunn) provided plenty of 
laughs. Alas . . . Sack!

A chilly, unfriendly day moved 
Chapel indoors for the first time this 

The inspection was another good 
one with a perfect North Glenayr 
walking off with the prize. 

John Smith elaborated another 
characteristic of Christian leadersTiip. 
This time he made effective use of 
the stories of David and GoUath and 
the Prodigal Son to explain the im- 
portance of inner strength and cour- 

By lunch the weather had bright- 
ened somewhat, and the following 
guests enjoyed one of Don's turkey 
dinners: Ewing Walker's family. Lar- 
ry Doe's family and Freddy Levering's 
sister and friends. Also, thunderous 
applause for Johnny Kistler's 6th 

A full range of afternoon activities 
with particular interest in the touch 
football game; a chffhanger in which 
a late rally spearheaded by Doug 
Reddy and Ewing Walker overcame 
the early lead of the forces of Paul 
Newlin and Robby Richardson. After 
supper the usual council softball game 
was a particularly heated affair. In 
spite of a late inning uprising, time 
ran out on the Oranges, and the Blacks 
triumphed. 11-5. 

Prayers and a resounding Kieve 
song and cheer closed the Hd on an- 
other day. 

Monday. July 16 — Jack Kistler 

Another gloomy and cold day 
greeted eager campers as they in- 
haled all the hot cereal on hand. The 
Pemaquid Trip under the sacrificial 
leadership of Dick Kennedy, and the 
Katahdin group pushed off right after 

For those left in camp soccer drew 
the most support. Nevin's Knuckle- 
heads defeated Moller's Meatballs 3 
to 1 in an exciting and educational 
game. Two frogs occupied most of 
swim time as these educational toys 
proved willing. 

Rain allowed a long rest hour after 
a Chef-Boy-ar-Weston lunch. 

Afternoon activities found fishing, 
archery, riflery and trip packing filled 

A roast beef dinner, candy, evening 
activities, and a clearing sky allowed 
all to fall asleep with ease. 

Tuesday-Thursday, July 17-19. 
Trips II 

Friday. July 20 — Grant Dunn 

A beautiful day greeted the camp- 
ers as they were awakened at 7:30. 

The usual order of the day pro- 
ceeded without a hitch until activity 
period. This part of the morning was 
devoted to cleaning out the bunk- 
houses and collecting the equipment 
that had been airing out since the 
trips. Though no official announce- 
ment was made, in my opinion. South 
Harris had the neatest bunkhouse. 

A full round of activities were held 
in the afternoon. Dowti at the rifle 
range. Joe D'Antonio earned his 
Marksman's badge. 

After dinner a "Lost Councillor" 
hunt was held. TTiree councillors 
'"lost" themselves on the campgrounds 
and the campers were asked to find 
them. A reward of extra candy bars 
was offered to the first person who 
found the councillors. Dick Koelle 
was found in about two minutes by 
Ches Yellott. Koelle was hiding in 
the loft of Innisfree. Morrie Heck- 
scher was found hiding under his 
table by Henry Cabot. Dune Cocroft. 
who was "lost" under a pile of pine 


needles in the woods, could not be lo- 
cated even though Denny Emory and 
John Perkins had walked within ten 
feet of him. 

Evening prayers were held in front 
of Innisfree and the campers retired 
at 8:20 P. M. 

JLI Y 21, 1962— Dick Koelle 

A threat of rain postponed picture 
day and loomed throughout the morn- 
ing. After inspection, the usual ac- 
tivities were accompanied by the sea- 
sonal debut of Radio Building. Mike 
Westcott was in a bad mood, so swim 
was compulsory. 

After rest, during which South 
Harris covered cabins for the Council 
Meeting, the skies cleared. D'An- 
tonio's team clobbered Fenhagen's 
team on the football field, with Direc- 
tor Kennedy starring as a decoy. 
Elsewhere, Ned Hetherington got his 
Bar III, and Rhoads, Sutton, Wood 
and Crecraft also scored at the rifle 
range. Waterfront chief. Hill Fergu- 
son, slept through the swim, indicat- 
ing to all that Southern boys just can- 
not handle too much love life. 

Evening activities included camp 
movies, taken by the Koelle brothers, 
and an abbreviated fight night, with 
Stu Harper's mother as honorary 
judge. Individual winners were White, 
Piper, Betz, and Miller, and D'An- 
tonio-Fenhagen vs. K. Moller-Nevin 

After chaos, recuperation (i.e., 

Sunday, July 22nd — 
Dick Kennedy 

A bright clear dawn promised a 
fine day. Pancakes flying through 
the air, duties with dispatch, a scrub- 
bing tub, a close mspection, and chapel 
were in order for the morning. South 

Glenayr could not be faulted and they 
were deservedly awarded the extra 
ice cream. 

John Smith spoke particularly well, 
using as his text the passage from Luke 
in which we are admonished "to judge 
not lest we be judged.'' This critical 
trait is one that we are all guilty of, 
and the message really sank in. 

Libby and Wayne Downey (Libby 
was the Kieve nurse in 1960) graced 
our luncheon tables, and Don Ken- 
nedy's old friends were pleased to see 
him too. 

The highlight of the afternoon's ac- 
tivities was a blistering "razzle dazzle" 
touch football game in which Crecraft's 
Crafty Cakewalkers defeated Supplee's 
Saucy Sidewinders. Starring for the 
victors were high scoring ends, Ewing 
Walker and Doug Reddy, while Steve 
Nickless was a tiger on defense. 

In all candor, 1 must say that the 
Orange council were "the class" of 
the evening, as Dick Koelle's hitting 
and pitching prevailed, 5-2. 

We welcomed George Baker back 
to camp at Flag, and a particularly 
lusty Kieve cheer and a dip capped 
off the day. 

Monday, July 23, 1962 — 
Jack Kistler 

Cloudy skies threatened the morn- 
ing's activities, but, several Innisfree 
contests were held, along with fishing, 
nature, and shop. 

Radios arrived for many to con- 
struct, and Ted Whitney was now in 
his glory. Lunch of beef stew was 
welcomed by all after the cold wet 
morning. An extended rest period 
brought surprising results. The wind 
changed and a beautiful afternoon 
was enjoyed by all. In the evening 
the South Harris Canadians had a 
fierce touch football game, with the 


Oranges winning on a last second 
spectacular catch by Tom Supplee. 
These older boys then returned to 
their cabin and packed for tomorrow's 
trip to Canada and their three week 

Taps was sounded after a dip. and 
all slept well. 

Tuesday, July 24 — Mike Westcott 
On Tuesday morning the O. D. 
awoke to a damp and dreary day, and, 
consequently fretted about how to oc- 
cupy the campers. In a stalling tech- 
nique it was decided to have a late 
breakfast. This brief period of quiet 
allowed the O. D. to gather his frayed 
wits and to outline a program for the 

After breakfast the campers joyfully 
scampered back to the cabins to clean 
them. Instead of those dreary every- 
day duties the boys had an oppor- 
tunity to clean the cabins, and. of 
course, greeted the suggestion with 
unbridled enthusiasm. 

Once inspection was a reality, all 
gathered at Innisfree for Indian Cir- 
cle. The activities for the morning 
included: drama, bombardment, na- 
ture, and shop. Apropos of the weath- 
er the shopworkers busied themselves 
making model boats. 

To supplement the regular activity 
period there was a movie about Indian 
arts and crafts shown before lunch. A 
deep silence gripped Innisfree until, in 
the last minutes of the suspenseful film 
the identitv of the murderers was re- 
vealed to the questioning audience. 

During the afternoon the weather 
cleared up and allowed such activities 
as archery, riflery and sailing to be 
added to the afternoon program. In 
addition it made possible a compul- 
sory swim. Everyone uttered words of 
agreement and mirth concerning the 
wisdom of the swim. 

The evening's activities were a rare 
combination of hide-and-go-seek and 
free time. Once these festivities ended 
it was time for the O. D."s favorite 
activity — sleeping! 

Wednesday, July 25 — John Smith 
The day dawned clear, sunny and 
warm and stayed that way for the en- 
tire day. After the regular duties, in- 
cluding such favorites as tennis court 
duty and the 'ioved" archery field 
duty, the activity period began. 

Many types of instruction filled the 
morning period of activity. South 
Glenayr received canoeing instruction 
in preparation for the Damariscotta 
River trip, the life saving class met and 
learned some of the various methods 
of pulling drowning victims to safety, 
and the sailors met for a discussion of 
the various sailing terms and pro- 

During the afternoon, the highlight 
was the football game in which the 
Pack packers scored a tremendous vic- 
tory over the sleeking Slacks, who 
fought hard to the bitter end but were 
unable to match the skill of the Pack- 

After dinner found the entire camp 
engaged in the game of Frenchmen 
and Indians with the Oranee as the 
Indians and the Black as the French. 
Three full games were played as the 
black managed to win for the evening 
in a close game — 2-1. 

The day closed with Fla-z. the Kieve 
song, and pravers and all turned in for 
their nightly ghost story and sleep. 

Thursday, July 26. 1962 — 
Jim Gregory 

When I awoke this morning I found 
gray skies and a httle rain. It was a 
frontal out of the southwest. Due to 


the rainy weather most ot the activi- 
ties were geared to the indoors. Ted 
Whitney conducted his first chiss in ra- 
dio which the campers enjoyed. Dur- 
ing the first half of the morning there 
was a football game at which time Fer- 
nald's team was victorious over Rich- 
ardson's mighty warriors by a score of 
11-7. Just as Denny Emory and 1 
finished painting the deck of the new 
Sailfish it began to rain quite hard. 
When all charged into Innisfree there 
was Orange and Black competition in 
a big game of bombardment. 

The highlight of the morning was 
replacing the crossbar which holds up 
the Gong. With the ingenious ellorts 
of Dick, Jack and Grant, a few coun- 
cillors and a few sidewalk superin- 
tendents the new top bar was replaced 
with ease. The big worry in doing the 
job was due to the simple fact the Gong 
weighs 1,000 to 1,500 pounds. To 
end up the morning Freddy Moller re- 
ceived his Marksman in rifiery, and 
Andy Sutton received his Marksman 
First Class. 

After a long rest period we all 
watched a movie in Innisfree. At 4:30 
there was a quick tub. After dinner 
we celebrated Ches Yellott's birthday. 
The movie this evening was entitled 
'Tlorian." It was enjoyed by all be- 
cause it was a horse story. At 9:00 
we went to bed. 

Friday. July 27 — Grant Dunn 

A beautiful sunrise was quickly 
overshadowed by cloudy skies as the 
campers greeted another day at Kieve. 

The usual morning procedures were 
followed and the activity period was 
started with some limitations on choice 
of activities due to a smaller camp with 
South Harris on a trip, and a Black 
and Orange baseball game. The 

Oranges won the game on John van 
Roden's perfect pitching. Ewing 
Walker was their big gun with a double 
and triple. At the rifiery range John 
Clark and Ned McKoy earned marks- 
man first class while Bucky King 
earned his Marksman. In the after- 
noon the Black took their revenge on 
the Orange and soundly trounced them 
in a track meet 42-29. Tom Supplee 
was the only double winner. He won 
the sprint and hurdles for the Orange. 
Other winners were: Ricky Crecraft, 
Distance Run; Peter Betz, Broad 
Jump; Noel Fales, Softball throw. The 
relay races were split between the two 
teams. Also at the rifle range, Phil 
Franke earned Marksman First Class. 

In the evening the Blacks continued 
their winning ways by winning two 
out of three French and Indian games 
and tying on the last one. Ricky Cre- 
craft and Ches Yellott were standouts 
for the Blacks. 

Evening prayers were led by our 
Chaplain, John Smith, and the boys 
retired at 8:30 after another full day 
at Kieve. 

Saturday, July 28 — Dick Koelle 

It was on a perfect day that the 
North Harris boys, along with Mike 
Westcott, Dave Scull and Bob Koelle 
departed on the Long Voyage. In- 
spection was noted by North Bunker 
Hill's intact streak of being Saturday's 
messiest cabin. By the end of activi- 
ties, Jim Gregory's hair had turned 
white (while painting the new sail- 

The day whizzed by — picnic lunch, 
rest, white arrow for Tom Iglehart, 
swim, and chicken and rice. Evening 
activities were novel for 1962 — A 
TREASURE HUNT. Clues were 
hunted down and stumbled onto in an 


effort to discover the riddle and its so- 
lution. The team of Ewing Walker, 
Robby Fernald, Jack Machen, and 
Nicky LeFevre succeeded, and won the 

Does anybody know why Ricky Cre- 
craft sat on the floor during break- 

Sunday, July 29 — 
Dick Kennedy 

A hot, humid Sunday was promised 
at dawn. Duties, tub, and a rigid in- 
spection, in which the assistant inspec- 
tor was Terry Rhoads" father, followed 
in rapid succession. Surprisingly 
naughty North Glenayr won the prize. 

John Smith discussed the fifth and 
final quality of Christian leadership, 
usins the story of Jonathan and David 
to illustrate— SINCERITY. 

In addition to the councillors' fam- 
ilies, Tom Iglehart and Terry Rhoads 
also had guests for the deUcious steak 
luncheon. A full range of afternoon 
activities was highlighted by the 
dogged, persistent island swim of Fred 
Moller and Dick Kennedy; the cheer 
was deafening as Freddy pulled him- 
self out of the water, chilled but proud. 

In the evening all witnessed a strong 
Black touch football team eke out a 
victory over the undermanned but 
courageous Orange aggregation. 

A rousing Kieve song and cheer put 
the lid on another day. 
Monday. July 30 — Jack Kistler 

After a breakfast of pancakes and 
doughnuts a full camp prepared for 
the third and last trips. The Glenayrs 
took off for Pemaquid. and the White 
Mountains. This left only the Bunker 
Hill boys in camp to dream of their 
ensuing trip tomorrow. 

Games in Innisfree. fishing, and 
packing occupied the morning. After 
a rainy rest hour, the sun shone, and 
the boys enjoyed the waterfront, fish- 

ing, swimming, sailing and sunbathing. 
Tnat evening saw the boys cutting 
spreader sticks, and final packing. 
Taps was welcome as they dreamed of 
Loud's Island and the salt water fun 
in store the next day. 
No Reports — Tuesday, July 31, 
Thursday, August 2 
Friday, August 3, 1962 — 
Grant Dunn 

A briUiant morning greeted the 
tired campers as they awakened at 
7:30. The usual morning procedures 
were followed and when it was time 
for activities most chose the waterfront. 
All of the sailing craft and canoes were 
in use. A few fellows tried tennis and 
archery but the heat drove them to the 
water in no time. A long swim under 
perfect conditions was enjoyed by all. 
Afternoon activities saw the boys at 
the numerous locations trying their 
skills. After a dehcious meal of fish 
and chips evening activities took place. 
North Bunker Hill took South Bunker 
Hill in a game of soccer, 2-0. The 
flag was lowered at 8:15, and the camp 
was secured for the night. 
Saturday, August 4 — Dick Koelle 

A cloudy morning was featured by 
an informal Orange-Black baseball 
game. Tight defense and back-to-back 
hits by John van Roden and Jeff Slack 
gave the Oranges a 1-0 victory. 

After lunch and rest, through which 
the O. D. almost slept. Stu Harper's 
Pro-Marksman and Harry Cabot's 
Sharpshooter almost stole the show 
from a football game between Walker's 
Runners and Gamage's Garbage. The 
game was close, with Mike Miller 
(three touchdowns) and Paul Newlin 
trading catches in a brilliant duel, but 
Stephen Michael's late efforts sw^ng 
the decision to the Runners. 9-6. 
Meanwhile. Hill started an Interme- 
diate Swimmer class at the waterfront. 


During dinner, the third new sail- 
boat and the gear for all three arrived 
with Dick from Boston. We were 
amazed at the height of the masts and 
the size of the booms. 

Evening activities saw South Bunk- 
er, led by Miller, Machen, and Nick- 
less, defeat North Bunker in football, 
4-0. N. McKoy, Baer, and Company 
were overpowered by cheerleader Gra- 
ham Yearley's forces. 

The South has risen again. 

Sunday, August 5, 1962 — 
Dick Kennedy 

The day dawned foggy and cheer- 
less; however by afternoon the sun had 
burned through. This morning's in- 
spection, a universally poor one, was 
won by North Glenayr. 

Chapel, which was held in Innisfree, 
was particularly noteworthy for John 
Smith's lucid talk on a difficult subject, 
the purpose, kinds, and ways of pray- 


Only the Kieve family was here for 
a delicious chicken dinner. All of us 
were saddened to hear that Toni 
Quinn, who had taken care of the 
Kistlers' children, had to leave for 
home on Monday. 

A sailing regatta, a touch football 
game, riflery, swimming instruction, 
tennis and work on the three new sail- 
boats provided the afternoon activities. 

At four o'clock a cry went up all 
over the hill, ''Bishop's here!" All 
descended on the weary traveller; some 
to peer for the first time, others to 
renew acquaintance. 

After supper a close, hard fought 
touch football game ensued between 
the council teams. With the wide 
eyed campers watching, the Blacks put 
on an awesome display of speed and 
finesse and easily outdistanced the op- 
position, 11-8. 

An evening dip. Flag, prayers, and 
lusty Kieve song and cheer capped off 
another busy day. 

Monday, August 6, 1962 — 
Jack Kistler 

The campers awoke to a muggy, 
overcast day which quickly burned 
away as we ate breakfast. The usual 
activities occupied the camp, with the 
football field enjoying the most activity. 
Supplee's Suckers defeated Cabot's Cu- 
ties 6-4 after a closely fought battle. 
Wayne, our kitchen buddy, showed 
them all at the rifle range, with some 
Davy Crockett type rifle work and won 
two awards. 

A hardbook rest hour was followed 
by a waterfront activity period. The 
day was very hot. and the water felt 
ever so good. North Harris left for 
dinner at Dick's, and the rest ate din- 
ner and enjoyed a game of French and 
Indians. Crecraft was in jail most of 

the evening. Taps after a quick dip 
ended a fine day. 

Tuesday, August 7, 1962 — 
Mike Westcott 

A sky full of broken clouds and 
gusts of wind pervaded the Camp 
Kieve environs. Throughout the day 
there was the fear of an impending 

With the exception of three startling 
events, the day proved a typical one. 
The first of these was that Dave Scull 
ran the rifle range. The second oc- 
currence was the shattering of the flag- 
pole. The final miracle, which proved 
the fearful signs true, happened at din- 
ner when Polly played with the lights 
and received an immediate cheer. 
Everyone enjoyed the fiasco, and left 
smiling with candy in mouth. A rous- 
ing game of capture the Flag ended the 

Wednesday, August 8, 1962 — 
John Smith 

Camp awoke to a rather dismal day 
which later burned off to a fairly clear 
and windy one. After the usual pe- 
riod of regular duties, activities period 
began with a play practice which is to 
be presented "Watersports" weekend. 
After a short review of the play, those 
in the play stayed for rehearsal while 
the others went to regular activities. 

After swim, and an excellent lunch 
of B. L. T. sandwiches and the usual 
rest period, the main event of the after- 
noon was the soccer game on the Land 
Snorts field where the Crecraft Creeps 
edged out the Sly McKoys in a 1-0 
game. During the day several people 
made their respective qualifications in 
archery and riflery. A water polo 
game dominated the swim period in 
which the Bishops battled the Hills for 
a draw score. 

[60 J 

After dinner the activities were an 
Orange-Black baseball game and an 
Orange-Black football game in which 
the Orange squeezed out a close vic- 
tory. A swim in a choppy lake ended 
the activities and with evening prayers 
the camp turned in for a much sought 
after night's sleep. 

Thursday, August 9, 1962 — 
Jim Gregory 

We were greeted this morning by 
gray skies and a strong wind out of 
the northeast. To start olT the day we 
soon learned that the diving raft broke 
its mooring and drifted into shore 
along with the orange duck. During 
duties we were all quite busy placing 
the raft back in its place plus putting 
three new moorings out for the Sun- 
rays. As we progressed into activities 
the skies began to clear up but the 
wind was still strong. During activi- 
ties Dick, Mr. Grover, Don, Downie 
and myself stepped the mast on the 
blue Sunray. It would have been hard 
work if Art Grover, who made these 
beautiful boats hadn't been there. 
Finally that long awaited moment came 
when we put her in the water. Dick 
and Art were the first to sail the Sun- 
ray and as they left the dock Nancy 
Kennedy named it the Grover. 

There were other accomplishments 
also. Jack Kistler spent most of the 
day working on the big Kieve sign 
which hangs at the entrance of camp. 
Down at the rifle range Bucky King 
shot a score of 49, the highest this 
year. Also Gram Yearley earned his 
sharpshooter. At archery Jack Ma- 
chen received his blue arrow and Phil 
Franke shot for his black arrow. 

To make the day complete we had 
a baseball game with Chimney Point. 
We played a perfect game until the 
last inning when we lost our lead. I 

know if darkness hadn't come so soon 
we would have easily won. But as it 
was the game ended up in a tie. Not 
everybody went to the game because 
we had a movie here at camp. The 
title of the film was 'The Fastest Gun 
Alive," a thrilling western. After this 
to bed we went. 

Friday, August 10, 1962 — 
Grant Dunn 

A dry northeaster awaited the camp- 
ers as they were rudely awakened at 
7:30. Their duties were performed as 
usual. At Indian circle most of the 
boys were in play rehearsal. Those re- 
maining had their choice of activities. 
The results from the rifle range were: 
Tom McKoy earned his Sharpshooter, 
John Clark and Bucky King their 
Bar I, and Beany LeFevre won his 

A rain that was to continue through- 
out the afternoon started to fall during 
lunch. This forced the afternoon's ac- 
tivities indoors. A movie on railroad- 
ing was shown, and then the boys 
worked on their "K's." It proved 
quite profitable. 

Innisfree was the scene of another 
fine movie, ''Drums Along the Mo- 
hawk." After the settlers had settled 
the Indians the O. D. settled the camp- 
ers and declared camp secure at 8:40. 

Saturday, August 11 — Dick Koelle 
After a succession of gloomy days, 
several councillors tried brainwashing 
to insure fair weather. It worked for 
awhile; Bob Bishop, who was finally 
accepted at Penn after four years at 
Princeton, was stripped to the waist 
on the courts. 

Morning activities saw Tom Supplee 
(Bar V), Will Stettinius, Pete Wallace, 
and Duncan Ely score at Riflery, and 
Reed Shingle, Doug Reddy, Geoff 


Nuckols, and Wayne Colpit at Arch- 
ery. On the new field, Ned McKoy's 
Noodles defeated Cabot's Cowards by 
the basketball score of 120-108. Mc- 
Koy, Levering, and Richardson led the 
stampede of the Noodles. At lunch, 
we were honored by the company of 
Harry Cabot's father. 

The afternoon was featured by the 
thirteen-year-old baseball game with 
Chimney Point. John van Roden's 
fine pitching, the hitting of Freddy 
Levering (two hits and two RBI's), 
Jeff Slack, and Ned Hetherington, and 
a 4-2 lead were wasted by a late 
comedy of errors in a 6-4 Kieve loss. 
Evening activities (free time, tennis 
tournament, games, etc.) lacked the 
presence of North Glenayr, wlio were 
being partied by Dick and Nancy. 

And finally, like little angels, to bed. 

Sunday, August 12, 1962 — - 
Dick Kennedy 

Another gloomy dawn with inter- 
mittent drizzle greeted a sleepy camp 
at reveille. The hopes of the Catholics 
were shattered as J. F. K. did not at- 
tend their Mass. Duties, a superb in- 
spection won jointly by the Bunker 
Hills, and choir practice preceded an 
inspiring chapel service in Innisfree. 
Mr. Hudson, assistant director of 
Camp Chewonki, spoke with sincere 
eloquence about the importance of us- 
ing one's hidden talents to the best ad- 
vantage. He used his knowledge of 
nature to illustrate several points which 
made his talk particularly interesting. 

We were joined at lunch by Ray 
Fitch, a prospective Kieve boy, and 
Mr. and Mrs. Hudson. The dining 
room was virtually hushed from 12:30 
until 1:30 as we all dug into the tur- 
key dinner with a will. 

At long last the sun broke through 
in the afternoon. The activities in- 

cluded tennis matchfes, lifesaving, 
sailing, a play rehearsal, and a rough 
and tumble touch football game in 
which Bill Hudson, Mac Keyser, Harry 
Cabot, Ned McKoy, Jack Machen, and 
Peter Gamage starred. 

Despite a rousing effort by John 
McCord, Dick Koelle, Willie Stokes, 
and Mike "The Runner" Westcott, the 
strong Black Council football team 
rolled up a rather easy, series-clinching 
victory, 15-5. 

After a rapid dip, prayers, the 
Kieve song and a cheer, all was quiet 
on the hill. . 

Monday, August 13, 1962 — 
Jack Kistler 

Another cloudy day greeted each 
bright, and grimy face, so the trip to 
Pemaquid Beach was again postponed. 
Duties saw the field and volleyball 
court lined, some brush cut, and some 
general housekeeping take place. Ac- 
tivities were chosen, engaged in, and 
the play was rehearsed. Lunch w^s 
good and warm, and all rested quite 
eagerly at rest hour. Afternoon ac- 
tivities saw the radio shack, archery 
field, rifle range, and football field 
filled and active. That evening after 
a wonderful ham and cabbage dinner, 
t4ie Bunker Hills played each other to 
a scoreless tie in soccer, while North 
Harris trounced North Glenayr in vol- 
leyball. South Glenayr partook at 
Dick's house until taps when all calmed 
and rested. 

Tuesday, August 14, 1962 — 
Mike Westcott 

No sun shone on Tuesday; instead, 
the day was cloudy and gray. But 
such weather was typical of the last 
week and so the day's program on long 
activity periods and short swims 


seemed perfectly natural. Of note, 
yet not out of keeping with the en- 
vironment, was the arrival of the in- 
famous South Harris Wilderness 
group. The day ended with games, 
taps, a dip, and bed. 

Wednesday, August 15, 1962 — 
John Smith 

Finally the weather broke and a 
bright, sunny, warm day greeted the 
camp for a day full of activity. After 
the customary period of duties and 
some time allotted for the last laundry 
chaos the day's activities began. Most 
people went to activities such as arch- 
ery, riflery and life-saving to complete 
the necessary tasks for qualification. 
During the morning pictures were also 
taken of some of the activities and of 
the second generation campers. 

After an excellent lunch and a rest 
period which was filled mostly with 
play practice the afternoon activities 
began with the same activities except 
for a football game between the Cre- 
craft Mongrels and the Machen 
Smashers — the latter who managed 
to win a close and exciting game. 

The evening activity was French and 
Indians and camp settled down for the 
night after prayers and the Kieve song. 

Thursday, August 16, 1962 — 
Jim Gregory 

We were up at 8:00 this morning 
under clear skies. Since this was the 
last week of camp most of the boys 
spent the morning finishing up qualifi- 
cations for their "K's." Down at the 
archery range Tom Reynolds shot for 
his Sharpshooter, Willie Stettinius re- 
ceived his Marksman First Class, 
Bucky King received his Bar II, and 
Harry Cabot his Bar I. John Smith 
and John Perkins finished the nature 
display and Hill Ferguson gave the 

final exam for life saving down at the 

During the afternoon we had a re- 
gatta during which time I turned over 
the blue Sunray. After supper Ted 
Whitney had play practice. We were 
in bed by 9:00 o'clock, but the day 
did not end because there were ice 
cream parties in each of the bunk 

Friday, August 17, 1962 — 
Grant Dunn 

A very foggy morning greeted us as 
the campers opened their bleary eyes. 
All had hopes that it would burn off, 
but were later disappointed by a thun- 
derous thunderstorm. 

Inspection was held and after severe 
threats by "Two-Ton" Dunn the bunk- 
houses looked presentable. Activities 
during the day were well attended 
with sailing and lifesaving taking the 
majority of the campers. Afternoon 
swim was interrupted by our storm. 

The Point Supper was rained out, 
but it did clear in time for a bonfire, 
marshmallows, the traditional song of 
farewell, Dick's rendition on tradition, 
and the opportunity to all meet as one 
for the last time this summer. 

After the campfire the walk back 
was rather scary as the moon hadn't 
peeked through yet, but all returned 
safely, we think, and all hit the sack 
with ease. 

Saturday, August 18, 1962 — 
Dick Koelle 

The weather that dawned this morn- 
ing convinced old Kieveites that the 
Watersports Weekend weather charm 
was still in effect. Excitement was 
high all morning, as campers packed 
and waited for their parents. After 
swim, canoe tilt eliminations saw the 
teams of Pack-King and K. Moller- 
Perry come out victorious. 

[63 J 

During rest, all waited anxiously as 
families slowly started to filter in. 
Stephen Michael's father, the last in a 
string of pitchers for the old men, 
caught a line drive in self-defense to 
salvage a 9-9 tie in the annual Father- 
Son Softball game. Swim and free time 
allowed the families to take advantage 
of the facilities, especially the Water- 

The highlight of the evening was a 
play entitled, "Parents Think the 
Damdest Things." This musical 
comedy was written by Nancy Ken- 
nedy and directed by Ted Whitney. 
John van Roden, Ned Hetherington, 
and Jeflf Slack, in the lead roles, and 
the entire cast were wonderful. 

It was late when we all went to bed 
together for the last time. 

Sunday, August 19, 1962 

A most beautiful day greeted camper 
and parent alike as the last day be- 
gan. The usual morning duties and 
tub preceded car packing and the 
Chapel service. John Smith summed 
up his year of preaching, dwelling on 
family ties, and how all the attributes 
of a Christian Gentleman should be 
emulated by each cf us. 

Turkey salad and the trimmings 
followed, and after a brief rest hour, 
all assembled at the lake for the water- 

sports events. The results appear at 
the end. 

The lobster-corn feed was absolute- 
ly wonderful and enjoyed by all, after 
which all retired to Innisfree for the 
awards. Each boy was rewarded for 
his endeavor, and the parents and 
children silently, or not so silently 
stole away for the year. Good luck to 
all, and See you Next Year!

The lake is alone in the moonlight. 

The trees are alone on the hiU; 
The cabins are quiet and empty, 

No voices or laughter to trill. 
The hush of September is on us, 

The school bell has rung in each town; 
The leaves golden yellow are turning. 

The grass on the hillside is brown. 
The birds from the telephone wires 

To the southward have wended their way, 
The squirrel, the rabbit and woodchuck 

Will soon settle down for their stay. 
Soon snows of December will blanket 

This Boyland of frolic and fun; 
The brief camping season is over. 

The ribbons and medals are won. 
But June will bring back all the noise. 

The study, the work and the play. 
Aunt Harriet, Dick and the boys 

Will welcome a new Kieve day.
